Storyteller of the Year 2020: Pedro Vilela, Katrin Küllenberg, Menino Conhece Menina & Rowena Meadows
So excited to reveal our Storyteller of the Year 2020… and it’s a four-way tie between the brilliant Pedro Vilela, Katrin Küllenberg, Menino Conhece Menina & Rowena Meadows! All four of these exceptional photographers won four Family Story Awards each, which is an incredible feat, as it’s incredibly difficult to win just one!
To win a Family Story Award – which is for a series of 15 – 20 images of a single family – a photographer must show world-class creativity, storytelling and consistency. Our judges typically award just the top few percent of submissions, so winning a Story is difficult enough in its own right – to win four Family Story Awards in a single year (and only a half-year, at that, as This is Reportage: Family only launched half-way through 2020) is truly remarkable.
Very excited to reveal our five judges for our final Collection of 2020! Who will be in our Top Photographers of the year list…? Who will be our overall Photographer of the Year? We’re honoured that the following world-class photographers will be judging for us this round (clockwise, from top-left): Bex Maini (UK), Soven Amatya (UK), Andrzej Witek (Spain), Nikhol Esteras (Mexico) and Sophie Callewaert (Belgium).
The deadline is just a few days away now: Submit by 23:59 GMT on 23rd November 2020. Not a member yet? Join us to submit.
Delighted to have one of our judges from our previous Awards round – the fantastic Antonina Mamzenko – offer her thoughts and tips on how to make your Family Story submissions even stronger. Thanks so much, Antonina!
We had an exciting email recently, as a certain publication asked to feature our work…with that publication being Vanity Fair Italia! A real honour to be able to display so many of our members’ award-winning documentary family photography on such an esteemed site. Thanks so much, Vanity Fair Italia!
It was very exciting to be featured on the awesome Bored Panda this week! Bored Panda has millions of unique web visitors a month, and so it was really great to be able to show so much of our members’ brilliant work, to so many people. Thank you, Bored Panda!
