For its third consecutive year, the Spotlight Awards focuses on advertising photography.

Some of the most influential people from the most influential brands and magazines in the world take the time to pick out the best of the Spotlight Awards talents. Furthermore, this year saw the entry of two new and dynamic categories, CGI and Lingerie & Swimwear, making this year the most diverse and compelling yet.
