It gives us great pleasure to announce the winners of our first Collection of 2019! We – once again – had a record number of submissions, and – once again! – the quality was extremely high; we are so grateful to our five judges for this round (the fantastic Donatella Barbera, Jon Mold, Marianne Chua, Marius Barbulescu, and Jos Studios) who have been poring over the thousands of images and Stories for us.
As always, an image or a Story needed to be voted for by at least three of our five world-class judges in order to become awarded. Once again, this was incredibly difficult to achieve, with just the top 4% of individual captures becoming Reportage Awards, and the top 5% achieving a Story Award (for a series of 15 – 20 images, all from a single wedding – as we want to not only celebrate individual moments, but also the art and skill of storytelling and consistent creativity, too).
No poses; nothing staged: This is Reportage.
