The Google Photography Prize has announced it's top ten finalists with their grand prize winner to be determined on April 24th. With categories ranging from fashion to food, entrants were allowed to submit up to eight photographs. These ten finalists will have their work displayed at the Saatchi Gallery in London coinciding with the 'Out of Focus: Photography' exhibition. The grand prize winner will receive a photography travel package alongside an established photography coach.
With over 20,000 submissions, Google has highlighted their Google+ platform throughout the contest as a way for photographers to connect across the globe. With a Google+ Page dedicated to the contest, photographers staged hangouts, posted images, and expanded their personal circles at the same time.
