Ben Birchall, PA Media
The judges said: “Capturing that moment as the statue teetered on the edge and then went into the water was a moment of sheer perfection. Coupled with a fantastic shot of flood victims being moved and the tragic but beautifully composed shot of the three Covid victims’ funeral. Amazing work.”

The judges said: “Strong compelling pictures. Without this shot of Patrick Hutchinson, his story would never have been told. Such an amazing image that captured the importance of the race debate in this country.”
Hannah McKay, Reuters
The judges said: “Cleverly composed pictures and a style that you can recognise. McKay captures the poignant moments and times of conflict brilliantly. She frames her subjects as if they are the characters in a painting.”
Henry Nicholls, Thomson Reuters
The judges said: “The picture of Cummings is now iconic. Beautifully constructed, brilliantly captured and thought provoking – Nicholls delivered it in style. The Brexit night picture is a stunning still and the mask anti vax woman is disturbing. Really interesting selection.”
Hollie Adams, Bloomberg
The judges said: “Adams’ imagination and determination shines through in her selection. A different spin on the same subjects makes her images unique and pleasantly refreshing. The Dominic Cummings photo summed up such a huge moment in political and Covid coverage.”
Philip Coburn, Daily Mirror
The judges said: “Incredibly powerful pictures looking at the brutality of humanity. Coburn has captured quality, hard-hitting, real life situations with expressions that bring each story to life with emotion and meaning.”
