Top 100 Photographers of the Year 2023

Excited to announce our Top 100 Photographers of 2023! 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 Marisa Martins, who is our Overall Photographer of the Year, with 13 Awards won in 2023 – an amazing achievement. You can see one of her Awards above.

Special congratulations as well to Els Korsten, who is our Overall Storyteller of the Year for the 2nd year running, with 6 Family Story Awards – incredible.

You can also view our Top 10 Storytellers in the World, and we also have Top 10 rankings for the following countries: Belgium, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, UK, and the USA.

*Ranking is determined by overall number of Awards won in 2023; 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
