Picture Editors Awards – Winners

The Picture Editors’ Awards recognise and reward the very best of photographic journalism throughout the UK and Ireland. The 2004 awards were presented at a ceremony in the Great Hall of Guildhall in London, before an audience drawn from politics, publishing, and the photographic industry.

The Guardian took three of the top accolades, Dan Chung was named BG Group Photographer of the Year, and Roger Bamber – no stranger to the Award’s – took the Lord Mayor’s Award for Business and Industry. The title also becomes Getty Images Newspaper of the Year.
The Scotsman is Getty Images Regional Newspaper of the Year, and Scotland, as always, was especially well represented. No less than fourteen Awards travelled North of the Border.
Times photographers were nominated in eight categories, and the paper’s Saturday Magazine won the Getty Images Newspaper Magazine of the Year Award.
Two former Photographers of the Year feature in portfolio awards, and both add to an impressive list of past achievements. Reuters’ Jeff Mitchell becomes Nikon Sports Photographer of the Year, and the Scotsman’s Ian Rutherford took the award for Nikon Photo Essay.
Veteran Daily Mirror photographer Kent Gavin received a special award for a lifetime of achievement in press photography. The Lifetime Achievement Award is only the third to be made in the Awards’ eleven-year history.
