WONDERFUL WORLD

DAZZLING electrical storms and a miraculous water birth are among the stunning pictures shortlisted for an amazing photograph competition.

This year’s candidates for the Agora Best Photos of 2020 remind us the world’s still a beautiful place despite the covid lockdown.

Mobile app Agora launched the #bestphotoOf2020 contest on March 30 earlier this year.

Photographers from all over the world were invited to take part in the competition to show off their camera skills, with the winner set to walk away with almost £20,000.

Along the past eight months, over 35,000 photos were submitted from more than 135 countries across the globe.

Along with their photos, the photographers have also included a few paragraphs on what they will do with the money if they win.

From the thousands of submissions, only 50 finalists have been chosen as contenders for the coveted cash prize.

The winner of the prize will be awarded to the photo with the highest number of votes from the Agora user base and global community on December 28, 2020.
