The Press Photographer's Year 2006
The jury spent two very long days working through over 6,000 entries for the 2006 awards, both in slideshow form, and as 8x10 c-type prints, laid out on the huge Olivier foyer floor at the National Theatre. Unlike any other competition you could have entered in the UK, every one of your entries was shown to the jury as both projections and photographic prints.
A final edit of 157 photographs was made and 12 prizes were awarded. What follows is that list and a web gallery of the complete edit that appeared in the book and exhibition. This is "The Press Photographer's Year" for 2006.
Please click on a link to be taken to that place in the slideshow. The edit will then continue from that point.
