What is the Masters Tournament of the Year?
Originally submitted by the master contributor @youevil in 2021, the Masters of the Year tournament is a bracket-style competition where Masters compete to hold the title of Master of the Year in Image Editing, Original Photography, Original Artwork, Original Proofreading, and Original Sticker.
In each round of the tournament, masters vote for their favorite submissions, and those with the most votes advance to the next round. We had so many great submissions this year that it was hard to narrow it down to just one image per category.
After several rounds of voting, we are delighted to announce the winners of this year’s Masters of the Year tournament. Find out who won and join us in celebrating them below.

Photography that captures the subject from an unexpected angle is much more interesting. »
