ANKARA (AA) - Voting for Anadolu Agency's Photos of the Year contest, marking the essential events of this year, attracts attention.
Anadolu Agency, Turkey’s premier news outlet, held its first Photos of the Year contest in 2012. This year, 76 images were selected from more than 750,000 photos from various parts of the world, including Syria, Palestine, Russia, China, and Azerbaijan.
Photos will be selected across three categories, including news, life, and sport, from Anadolu Agency photojournalists or correspondents who have had an impact on the Turkish and world agendas.
Among the photographs, which include the shots determined by AA photo editors, there are photographs that are frequently used in leading media organs of the world media.
The images were put to a vote in the news category with 31 entries, life with 30 entries, and sports with 15 entries.
Categories are also available with Turkish and English captions.
Healthcare workers who are fighting with COVID-19 in the frontline were the first group of people that took part in this year's voting.
Also, many people from different professions, students, athletes and politicians have already chosen their favorite photos so far in Turkey.
Last year, nearly 280,000 people took part in the voting.
This year's voting will continue through Dec. 31 at Anadolu Agency's website at aa.com.tr/photooftheyear .
