2023 Grand Prize Finalists

Below are the 25 Finalists for the Grand Prize category.  This category is based on a photographer’s body of work that was submitted to the Pas de Deux Dance Photo Competition.  The body of work required a minimum of five images.

The winners will be announced at the Pas de Deux Dance Photography Conference Welcome Reception at the Chicago Hilton on July 21 around 8 pm.  It will be on live IG.

The images included in these montages are not always all of the images the photographer submitted to the competition.  The images used in these montages are intended to be representative of their work.

Congratulations to the dance photographers who have made this elite list!
