Dead mice, misty mountains and South American gang culture – the winners of the Association of Photographers Awards 2013 have been announced, with a diverse selection of work winning cross the categories of Object, Portrait, Life, Environment and Project, along with a new Lifetime Achievement Award, this year being presented to renowned photojournalist Don McCullin.

Robert Wilson’s series What The Cat Dragged In, won Best in Category for Object Series, depicting the presents left for him on certain mornings by his beloved pet. The reason he shot in black-and-white, he says, was “really due to the fact that most of them in colour are unpalatable, and yet in black-and-white allow us to study the animals in an anatomical way.”

Winning Best in Category for Object Single, was Steve’s Book, a monochromatic set of damp, wrinkled pages, by Richard Maxted.

James Day’s Golden Gods won Gold in the Portrait Series category, a personal project of close-up intimate portraits of nudes.

Rory Carnegie won Best in Category and Gold for Portrait Series for his studio images of dogs walked on the an ancient common grazing land of Oxford’s Port Meadow.

Winning Best Portrait Single was Jeroen Hofman, with his photograph of Hans van Maanen, commissioned by Mood for Magazines for L’Homo.

Winning Best Life Series was George Logan, with his images for the Whiskas’ Big Cat Little Cat ad campaign, commissioned by AMV BBDO, based on the slogan ‘feeding your cat’s instincts’.

Best Environment Single went to Morgan Silk, with his serene landscape photograph of Broadstairs in Kent.

Christian Schmidt won Best Environment Series, with his set of misty Austrian mountain tops, When the fog comes.
