March 28, 2017 • Awards, Company News

Getty Images photographers took home awards in almost every nominated category at the highly-acclaimed UK Picture Editors’ Guild Awards in London last night.

On a brilliant night for Getty Images photographers, with seven wins in total and a host of commendations, Getty Images photographer Jeff Mitchell was named Press Photographer of the Year, the second time he has been awarded the top honour. Mitchell also scooped News Photographer of the Year and Photo Essay of the Year.

Other Getty Images photographers to be honoured included Justin Setterfield as Sports Photographer of the Year, Chris Jackson was named Royal Photographer of the Year, Gareth Cattermole won Entertainment Photographer of the Year and Laurence Griffiths was crowned Videographer of the Year.

The prestigious awards launched in 2010 with panels of judges consisting only of working picture editors from national and regional newspapers and international photo agencies. Judges assess thousands of entries from professional photographers throughout the media.

These honours follow the Sports Journalism Awards in February, where Getty Images photographers took home four out of six awards on the night. Alex Livesey was handed the Ed Lacey Trophy, awarded to the judges’ Photographer of the Year, along with winning the Sports Portfolio category. Clive Mason won in the Rio 2016 Portfolio category, while Alan Crowhurst came out on top for Specialist Sports Portfolio. Getty Images photographers Justin Setterfield, Dan Mullan, Clive Brunskill, Ian MacNicol, Clive Rose, and Laurence Griffiths were all also nominated.
