The winning photo in the category of Colors of Life belongs to Peter Walmsley of England. He captured the flow of people rushing through a colorful market in Asia.

The competition said in a press release that Covid-19 pandemic "inevitably had an impact". Some photographers submitted images taken closer to home than they might due to lockdown limits. Meanwhile, others captured the world around them in places they became unexpectedly stranded. In addition to the photo evaluation categories, the contest has a category for travel videos.

Chris Coe, founder of TPOTY, said in a statement: "Interestingly, when our worlds feel like they've shrunk, the list of nationalities winning TPOTY and its categories has grown, with our first overall winner from Russia and other winning entries from Syria, Egypt and the Philippines for the first time, taking the total number of nationalities who have featured amongst our winners over the years to 45."

Covid restrictions permitting, the gallery will go on display in London on May 12, CNN reported. All of the winning shots, however, can be viewed at the TPOTY's online winners' gallery.
