Top 100 Photographers of the Year 2021

Honoured to reveal our Top 100 Photographers of 2021! It’s an incredible achievement if a photographer has made it on to this list, as it’s so hard to win a single award from us, let alone multiple in the same year.

Special congratulations to Sabine Doppelhofer, who is both our overall Photographer of the Year, and our Storyteller of the Year. With a staggering 34 Awards in total – 21 individual awards and 13 story awards – she is an incredibly deserved winner. You can see one of her many awards above.

As well as the Top 100 Photographers Worldwide list below, you can also view our Top 10 Storytellers in the World, and we also have Top 10 rankings for the following countries: Belgium, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Portugal, UK and the USA.

*Ranking is determined by overall number of Awards won in 2021; in the case of a tie, the photographer who won the most Family Story Awards ranks higher.

No poses; nothing staged – This is Reportage: Family
