Top photographers rewarded

The winners of the Picture Editors’ Awards 2002 have been announced.

Top photographers from around the regional press competed with agency snappers and staffers from the nationals for the prizes, which were presented by Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The winners were revealed in front of an invited audience of more than 600, drawn from journalism, politics, and the photographic industry.

Winners included Cavan Pawson who was on his way to cover a maternity fashion show for the Evening Standard last September 11 when he found himself caught up in an altogether different story.

He won the Getty Images News Photographer of the Year award for a chilling image of the collapse of the World Trade Center.

The Corporation of London’s Student Award, new this year, went to Cristina Nunziata, a student at the London College of Printing. She received a £1000 and work experience opportunities.
