2024 Participants

“Athlos” takes you beyond the finish line, within the frame, while diving into the raw emotions, the unwavering determination and the stories that unfold within the arena of sports.

In every frame, the photographers capture more than the tangible moments. They seize the spirit, the passion, and the relentless pursuit of excellence as each photograph is a chapter in the untold stories of sportsmanship.

Sports photography has played a key role and it is a genre that is constantly challenging the medium and each era’s tools even more than ever before. Its evolution and approach over the years have shifted our imagination and perception of what sports look and feel like.
