The 2013 UK Picture Editors’ Guild Awards winners were announced on 5 November and now a free exhibition of the winners' and runners' up images is on display in the rotunda of the Museum of London. This year's overall prize, the SABMiller Photographer of the Year, went to Stefan Wermuth of Reuters. Alan Sparrow, UK Picture Editors' Guild Chairman, said: ‘This year’s entries produced some of the closest scoring amongst our judges, but a clear winner emerged early. I think that the work of Stefan Wermuth makes him an outstanding SABMiller Photographer of the Year.’
Entries were received from over 400 photographers across the UK and in addition to the Photographer of the Year prize, twelve further categories had prizes awarded. These included the Genesis Regional Photographer of the Year, which went to Anthony Chappel-Ross of The Press, York; the Nikon Sports Photographer of the Year, won by Adrian Dennis from Agence France-Presse; and the UK Picture Editors’ Guild Photo Essay of the Year taken by Jack Hill of The Times.
The exhibition runs until 16 March 2014 at the Museum of London, 150 London Wall, LONDON EC2Y 5HN.
