Winners for the 2018 competition have now been announced

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.

Each year we welcome a panel of esteemed judges, each with exceptional talent and knowledge within the creative industry. Alongside our in-house editorial team, our judges curate the best work to create the Photography Annual: the definitive showcase of the most powerful, innovative and memorable imagery of the year.

Our judges this year include regular CR contributor and photographic art director Gem Fletcher, M&C Saatchi Head of Visual Content Mimi Gray, WeTransfer Photography Director Lucy Pike and CR Managing Editor Eliza Williams.
