Photographer of the Year 2020: Rowena Meadows
It’s an honour to announce our overall Photographer of the Year 2020: The brilliant Rowena Meadows! With an incredible 14 Awards won from us in total (10 Reportage Family Awards and 4 Family Story Awards) – which is even more remarkable considering the fact that we only launched half-way through 2020, and so have had half the number of Awards Collections that we would normally have in a year – Rowena led from our very first Collection and never looked back.
It is incredibly tough to win a single Award from us, with our five judges (who change for each round) typically picking just the top few percent from the thousands of submissions we receive – so to win 14 is a remarkable feat. Many congratulations to Rowena for becoming our very first Photographer of the Year, and for thus being number one on our Top 100 Photographers Worldwide of 2020 list.
