We are proud to share with you the award-winning photographs from our second international competition celebrating the very best in documentary family photography!

The guest judges for the Nothing Is Better Than Real Life category were Felicia Chang, Rebecca Kiger and Ryan Christopher Jones. Each of them evaluated every single submission we received and carefully selected thirty or less of their favourite photographs. Award winners were then chosen by Kirsten Lewis Bethmann and Jenna Shouldice, based on the guest judges selections, during our live broadcast of the final round.

The first 10 photos are ranked from 1st to 10th place with the remaining Honorable Mentions given equal weight in no particular order.
