The awards were launched in July, with PIPAs debut year attracting over 180,000 entries in less than three weeks – and it’s quickly become one of the world’s biggest photography competitions in history, and the largest of its kind on Instagram.

There was a lot of competition for Instagrammers, especially to reach the final round of judging across ten diverse categories, ranging from fashion to festivals, arts to animals, and the sites most used hashtags: #Love and #NoFilter.

Gathering in London, the panel of industry-leading experts, including The Guardian’s former Picture Editor Eamonn McCabe, Editor-in-Chief at Cosmopolitan Farrah Storr, and Lecturer in Photography at Kingston University Paul Postle, selected the very best submissions that celebrate the beauty in everyday life.

The shortlisted images include a Boxer puppy swimming in the sea, a snap of brotherly love and a stream of people trekking along the White Cliffs of Dover.

Rory Scott of Photobox, Chair of PIPAS 2018 judges, said: ‘From snapping our supper to capturing our canine friends, most of us like to test our everyday photography skills on Instagram.

‘But being such a popular site, we often miss out on some of the truly stunning photography on our feeds.

‘We received over 180,000 incredible submissions to the PIPAs and we are delighted to announce ten category shortlists, one of whom will be crowned our overall Instagram Photograph of the Year next month.’

Commenting on the judging process, Farrah Storr, Editor-in-Chief of Cosmopolitan, said: ‘The shortlisted pictures need to be something that would make you stop when you’re scrolling through Instagram.’

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in central London on 3 October 2018. The overall ‘Instagram Photograph of the Year’ winner will receive £5,000, with an additional £500 awarded for each of the ten category winners.
