Judges certainly said “Yes” to these stunning images, as they were today unveiled as some of the BEST ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHS IN THE WORLD.

In order to select the 50 best images, judges first anonymise the entries, before assigning points to each images.

Then, the final collection is comprised of the images that received the most points from the judges as well as the images that the Junebug team feel add diversity and good representation to the collection.
