Storyteller of the Year 2023: Els Korsten

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!

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 6 Family Story Awards in a single year is truly remarkable.

Below you’ll find all of Els’ winning Family Story Awards of 2023, and you can also see more of her work on her website and TiR:F profile:
