Chair of the Judges and Picture Editor of the Independent Newspaper, Sophie Batterbury, commented that “The overall calibre of entries was exceedingly high this year, in several categories it was very difficult to choose a winning entry.”

Over 380 photographers entered, more than 2000 photographs were considered by the judges, and fifty per cent of entries received in the last few hours of the entry period.
