We're now in Judging week: Winners of Collection 31 to be announced soon...

Top 100 Photographers of the Year 2022

Excited to reveal our Top 100 Photographers of 2022! A huge congratulations to the photographers who feature here, as to get one award from us is incredibly tough, let alone multiple awards in the same year.

Special congratulations to our Overall Photographers of the Year, Jesse and Moira La Plante, who won an amazing 19 Awards in 2022; an incredible achievement, and you can see one of their Reportage Awards above.

Special congratulations as well to David Scholes, who is our Storyteller of the Year for the second year in a row, with 7 Story Awards in the year.

You can also view our Top 20 Storytellers in the World, and Top 10 Photographers for the following countries: Belgium, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, UK, and the USA.

*Ranking is determined by overall number of Awards won in 2022; in the case of a tie, the photographer who won the most Story Awards ranks higher.

No poses; nothing staged: This is Reportage.
