Greig Fraser's cinematography on director Garth Davis' Oscar-contender Lion on Saturday won the top prize, the Golden Frog, at the just-concluded 24th International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography, Camerimage, in Bydgoszcz, Poland.

Adapted from Saroo Brierley and Larry Buttrose's A Long Way Home, Lion tells a story of a young boy who is separated from his family. The Weinstein Co. will releases the film on Friday.

Bradford Young's photography on Denis Villeneuve's sci-fi film Arrival took home the Silver Frog, and Anthony Dod Mantle's work on Oliver Stone's Edward Snowden biographical thriller Snowden collected the Bronze Frog.
