Last month we featured a range of stunning images all vying to win in the world’s first Instagram photography contest – and now the shortlisted entries have been revealed.

Organised by Photobox, Europe’s largest photographic community, the Photobox Instagram Photography Awards (PIPAs) amassed more than 180,000 individual entries after launching in July.

Encouraging users to showcase their skills, there were ten different categories including fashion, festivals, travel, pets and love.

Judges spent hours whittling the photos down, with the shortlisted images including a loved-up couple on the Paris Metro, a rainy view of London buses in the rain and a stream of people trekking along the White Cliffs of Dover.  

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in central London on October 3, with the overall ‘Instagram Photograph of the Year’ victor receiving £5,000. An additional £500 will be awarded for each of the category winners.
