SWNS’ Young Photographers Sweep up Awards at the ‘Oscars of Press Photography’
The 2014 Picture Editors Guild Awards – if you haven’t heard of this, it’s the Oscars of the press photography world and we get very excited about it. Once again we are pleased to announce that SWNS has cleaned up in the Fixation Young Photographer Bursary.
The competition was fierce and the standard was stronger than ever before. The talented SWNS photographer Henry Nicholls deservedly took first place and won the prestigious award (you can see some of Henry’s photos here).
Another SWNS photographer, Pete Summers, brushed off the rest of the field and came second in the Young Photographer category. Pete’s work was highly commended by the judges (you can see a selection of Pete’s photos here).
Alastair Johnstone, also an SWNS starlet, came 3rd in the Young Photographer category and also received a commendation for his work (you can see a number of Alastair’s photos here). You can see the entire Picture Editors Guild Awards list here: http://www.
