The Guardian has some of the winning entries to the TPOTY award for 2014 but the TPOTY website has them all and details of the photographers.
From the Arctic Circle to rural China, and from crystal clear sinkholes to 14,000ft mountain lakes, the winning images in this year’s TPOTY competition showcase astonishing natural beauty and incredible human diversity. To see all 150 images visit the TPOTY website
The winner Philip Lee Harvey won for his selection of images from Ethiopia.
Philip was born in Canterbury, England in 1969. After completing a Graphic Design degree at the Norwich School of Art and Design, Philip assisted some of the UK’s leading advertising photographers. Eager to develop his photographic career, Philip soon started taking on editorial and advertising commissions of his own.
Since then, he has worked in over 100 countries, ranging from Antarctica to the Sahara. His journeys have taken him to some of the world’s most inhospitable and demanding destinations.
