The Press Photographer of the Year Awards were established to bring the talented & memorable work of Ireland's press photographers to a wider audience. Entries are submitted by members of the Press Photographers Association of Ireland and the images should have been taken during the previous twelve months.
The Awards have gone from strength to strength and judging the entries can take several days. With over 2,000 entries to consider, all of a very high standard, difficult decisions have to be made. The Judging panel picks first, second and third places in each of nine picture categories, as well as the overall winner.
