Of all the differing forms of photography, panoramas must be among the most striking. Entire land, seas and skyscapes sprawled across a single shot – there’s simply more photo to enjoy, and the wide angle means the medium is perfect for capturing landscapes and destinations.

The 11th annual EPSON International Pano Awards has brought together the very best of the world’s panoramic photography, fielding a record 5,859 entries from 1,452 photographers in 96 countries.
