Every year The Northern Ireland Press Photographers Association (NIPPA) launches its search for the best photo journalists across Northern Ireland. Through the BT Northern Ireland Press Photographer of the Year competition, the outstanding work of Northern Ireland’s press photographers is duly recognised and rewarded.
Organised by the NIPPA, the competition attracted almost 400 entries from over 40 photographers across the country. Thirty-seven prizes spanning nine categories, eight merit awards, one runner up and two overall winners were awarded. Charles McQuillan, Pacemaker Press International, won the BT Photographer of the Year award with William Cherry, Press Eye named runner up. The title of BT Provincial Photographer of the Year was awarded to John McVitty, Impartial Reporter based in Fermanagh.
