Every agonizing and exhilarating moment of childbirth has been exquisitely captured in this year’s annual Birth Photography Competition, honoring the world’s most incredible images of birth. Organized by the International Association of Professional Photographers, the competition highlights the skill of birth photographers worldwide across four primary categories: birth details, labor, delivery, and postpartum. Additionally, four new subcategories have been introduced: black and white, documentary, fine art, and hardship and loss.
