Photographer of the Year 2010 Celebrates the Underwater World
January 28, 2011

After months of anticipation, the winners of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2010 were announced on 22 October at a gala awards ceremony held at the Natural History Museum, London. Once again Project AWARE supporters did us proud, with fabulous underwater shots in many categories of this renowned, worldwide showcase for the very best photography featuring natural subjects.

Leading the pack was our very own Brian Skerry, one of the patrons of Project AWARE.  He was runner-up in the competition’s brand new Wildlife Photojournalist of the Year award. Launched for the 2010 competition, this award is given to a portfolio of six pictures that tell a memorable and powerful story without the aid of words. His picture sequence The Most Shocking Story of All was shot to help raise awareness of the issues surrounding industrial fisheries – in particular, the methods used to gather fish, and the rapidly dwindling stocks.
