Sony Mobile was a client for many years, so I have a real affinity and love for the Sony brand, and I’ve always avidly followed their annual photography awards.
This year’s Photographer of the Year was awarded to British documentarian Craig Easton, who beautifully captured portraits of people from Blackburn in northern England.
I was delighted to see some winners from closer to home too. Coenraad Heinz Torlage from South Africa won Student Photographer of the Year, and Zimbabwean Tamary Kudita was named Open Photographer of the Year, a category honouring single images.
Congratulations to all the winners!
