Top 100 Photographers of the Year 2023

Honoured to reveal our Top 100 Photographers of 2023! 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 Photographer of the Year, Hollie Rosa Mateer, who won an incredible 14 Awards in 2023; an amazing achievement. You can see one of her Awards above.

Special congratulations as well to David Scholes, who is our Overall Storyteller of the Year for the 3rd year in a row; an incredible feat.

You can also view our Top 25 Storytellers in the World, and Top 10 Photographers for the following countries: Belgium, France, India, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, UK, and the USA.

*Ranking is determined by overall number of Awards won in 2023; in the case of a tie, the photographer who won the most Story Awards ranks higher.

No poses; nothing staged: This is Reportage.
