Alan Sparrow (above) Chair of the UK Picture Editors Guild Awards said “The quality of the work by the press is breath-taking and these image are testament to what good photography can do for the news industry. We should never underestimate the power of good photography in the pages of our magazines, newspapers and online.’’

Over four thousand pictures were entered by more than four hundred photographers. The entries were judged by a team of ten Picture Editors lead by Industry veteran Lee Martin (above). Lee told PAN when we met him a couple of weeks ago: ‘’The quality and variety of work submitted yet again this year was simply staggering there is so much talent out there and the UK really does lead the way. We need to work hard as an industry to make sure all these photographers get the exposure and credit they rightly deserve for their work. ‘’
