The winners have been chosen for this year's BJP International Photography Award.

The British Journal of Photography's annual International Photography Award has proved truly international this year, with a Spaniard based in Rome and Istanbul winning the series category and a Russian based in London the single image prize.

Alvaro Deprit beat off competition from 168 other entries to win the series category, submitting a story called Suspension which looks at unaccompanied minors who have fled war, poverty and political uncertainty for new lives in Italy.

Winners Chosen For This Year's BJP Awards: Nikolai Ishchuck

Nikolai Ishchuk beat 720 other entries to the single image category with a mischievous take on snapshot portraiture. Taking a found image showing a couple kissing centre stage for the camera, he spilt them up and put them to the edges of the shot using Photoshop's 'offset' command, then put the original background back in.

Deprit's series and Ishchuk's image will now be printed and framed by Spectrum Photographic, and will be on show at Foto8 Gallery from 14th - 24th November 2012.

I presume the words 'found image' means someone else's photograph? If so then the actual input was wholly photoshop .... Hmmm ... Not sure about that one.
