Honoured to reveal our Storyteller of the Year 2023: Els Korsten! It is amazing enough to ever win this title, but even more incredible is the fact that Els has now won this for the 2nd year in a row; truly remarkable. With 6 Family Story Awards won, Els sits on top of our just-announced Top 10 Storytellers in the World 2023 list. Congrats, Els!
Phew, we’ve just come back from London – where we had our TiR:F & TiR Christmas Party (on a boat on the Thames, no less!) – and we had an amazing time! So fantastic to meet up with photographers from all over Europe (including from all over the UK, France, Germany, and the Netherlands (two people from Holland even had their flight cancelled on the morning, but came over on the train anyway – can’t beat that kind of dedication!) and to dance the night away with them.
Honoured to reveal our Storyteller of the Year 2022… and it’s a three-way tie between the brilliant Els Korsten, Kristof Claeys & Rebecca Walters! All three of these exceptional photographers won 5 Family Story Awards each, which is an incredible feat, as it’s incredibly difficult to win just one!
Excited to announce our 2022 Photographer of the Year: Sabine Doppelhofer! Sabine has now won this title for the second year in a row – to win it once is amazing, but do so again the following year is truly extraordinary!
