The Depositphotos photography contest, Authenticity 2.0, has come to an end. You can review all the runners up that will be eligible to win the prizes on the contest’s Instagram page. We round up the contest with 1,884 participants and over 5,200 image submissions under the hashtag #authenticity_is.

The contest’s theme focusing on authenticity has led many artists to look within to translate through their photographs what this notion means to them. The biggest outcome of our first contest is the involvement of the Depositphotos community and other international artists that have shared their unique vision and art with us.
