The Fox Resorts Photography Awards is Sri Lanka’s first multipart, multiregional competition for photographers of all levels. Designed to uncover new interpretations beyond traditional archetypes, the contest showcases the best of natural and man-made beauty of Sri Lanka, from its abundant wildlife and lush flora to its diverse population and vastly varied architecture.
Home to the flagship hotel of Fox Resorts, Magnificent Jaffna was rolled out in 2019 to showcase the natural splendor, craft and heritage of Jaffna.
The second phase of the contest was conducted in 2020, to keep wanderlust alive while many parts of the world were in lockdown and travel restrictions were imposed for most of the year.
The contest received many photographs evidencing immense skill and distinctiveness, with each judged along a number of criteria, including technical and artistic value, unique viewpoints, and artistic composition. The winners were those whose submissions were exceptional and outstanding across all criteria.
