2020 Mark Gunter Photographer of the Yr Awards: Showcase 2
Towards the end of the year we were thrilled to see so many meaningful, reflective, and powerful stories in the posts on the Mark Gunter Photographers of 2020.
The theme this year is hope – and it's about both the story behind the picture and the picture itself. We ask that you read the captions and understand the meaning of the picture to any photographer.
Every entry makes a difference – and if you choose to pay, Tour de Cure will use your entry fee for cancer research.
Participants in the professional category compete for the prestigious title of Mark Gunter Photographer of the Year, the eternal trophy and a medallion.
In the amateur category, Wahoo generously awards prizes for the top three. First prize in this category goes to a Wahoo Elemnt Roam GPS computer. Second prize wins a Wahoo Elemnt Rival. and the third prize wins a Wahoo Tickr. All three winners also receive an annual subscription to the Sufferfest.
The competition ends on January 5th, 2021, at which point our judges – Kristof Ramon, Tim Bardsley-Smith and Ashley & Jered Gruber – will consider who will receive the award. While you're out on vacation this is the perfect time to get creative.

This week's storefront is a display of this year's images – and we hope you enjoy them.
The feature image comes from Anthony Leutenegger @anthonyleutenegger in the amateur category and is titled: “Hope! What better story for hope this year than Ceylin del Carmen Alvarado who won the cyclocross world championship. The first colored cyclist in history to do this. In this picture, she had just won the sprint and was screaming as her bike crashed into the gate that separated the fans and photographers from the riders. She hugged her mother as they both cried tears of joy. A very special moment. "
The professional category is open to all photographers who make a living from their work.
