The annual Getty Images & Friends vs The Rest of the World (photographers/photo editors) football match took place last Friday – 21 July.

First played in 2014 and now in its 7th year (2 missed Covid years) the match took place at Coram Fields near Russell Square, London.
Congratulations the ROTW team who won the match 7-4 after trailing at half time 3-2 in what was, as one player told PAN, “a 90 gruelling minutes”

Represented on the pitch were photographers/editors from 8 different photo agencies including AP, PA, Getty, Shutterstock, EMPICS, Snappers, The Mega Agency, Goff Photos and UK Press. They were joined by some old friends no longer in the business but always welcome for the annual game.

Goalscorer’s for the ROTW were Christian Barrett (Shutterstock), Anthony Harvey (Shutterstock), Simon Hammond (The Mega Agency) all netting 2 each and Doug Peters (EMPICS) with 1. For Getty Images one a piece for Neil Mockford, Karwai Tang, Joe Maher and Shane Anthony Sinclair.

A special mention has to go to arguably the man of the match Ash ‘The Cat’ Knotek goalkeeper for the ROTW team who made a string of point blank saves to keep the Getty team at bay. Special thanks goes to Neil Mockford (Getty Images) for organising the event and freelance photographer Zak Hussein for being the official photographer for the event.

Thanks to Simon Hammond at the The Mega Agency for additional reporting.
