Padło’s Greetings from Kazakhstan series of photographs features banners hung from construction sites in the city of Almaty and depicting idealised images of the country’s natural landscapes -- far removed from pictures often associated with Kazakhstan, such as a man-made desert at the exposed seabed of the Aral Sea or the former site of a Soviet nuclear testing ground.

The picture-perfect banners also stand in stark contrast to their urban surroundings as Almaty is one of the most polluted cities in the world.

Italy’s Luca Locatteli won first prize in the Landscape category, while second prize went to Ireland’s Rohan Reilly.

Britain’s Alys Tomlinson received the Photographer of the Year award.
