We're now in Judging week: Winners of Collection 16 to be announced soon...

Top 20 Storytellers of the Year 2022

A Family Story Award is given to the very best series of 15 – 20 images, all of a single family – and winning one is incredibly difficult! A photographer needs to demonstrate a world-class level of creativity, storytelling and consistency, across all those images, and our judges typically award just the top few percent of submissions. Winning a single Story is an achievement in itself; to have won multiple Stories within the same year – as all these photographers have done – is truly incredible.

Special congratulations to our joint Storytellers of the Year: Els Korsten, Kristof Claeys, and Rebecca Walters, who all won 5 Family Story Awards each. You can see some of their winning Stories above.

You can also view our Top 100 Photographers Worldwide, and we also have Top 10 rankings for the following countries: Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Netherlands, UK, and the USA.

*Ranking is determined by overall number of Awards won in 2022; in the case of a tie, the photographer who won the most Family Story Awards ranks higher.
