The Photography Annual 2017 Winners

Creative Review’s Photography Annual seeks to celebrate great images – those who take them and those who commission them. It’s open to everyone involved in the making and use of brilliant photography – advertising agencies, publishers, galleries, designers, brands and, of course, photographers.


We asked people to recommend magazines, brands, photobooks and photographers who they felt had been outstanding this year. The CR team took those suggestions and with the help of our panel of judges — came up with our winners.


We honour the magazine and brand making the best use of photography in the year, as well as our favourite exhibition and book. In addition, we are honouring one individual who has made an outstanding contribution to photography as well as picking five of the most exciting new photographers for our Zeitgeist award, sponsored by Eizo.
