The 2020 Mark Gunter Photographer of the Year Awards closed five days ago.
We received hundreds of incredible submissions from around the world – truly some of the best cycling stories and images from what was an incredibly difficult year for millions of people all over the world.
The Awards are a showcase for the talented entrant photographers, and they raise money for cancer research for Tour de Cure.
Now that entries are closed, it’s over to our panel of judges — Kristof Ramon, Tim Bardsley-Smith, and Jered Gruber & Ashley Gruber — to decide who’s going to be awarded the Mark Gunter Photographer of the Year Awards. Plus Graham Watson returns as our long standing contributor of the Awards, and he’ll select his top ten in the Amateur category.
Each of the judges have gone through the difficult task of shortlisting their top ten images from each of the categories. From these shortlists, the judges will deliberate on the top three of each category in the coming days – with final winners to be announced on January 12, 2021.
Ashley and Jered Gruber are two of the most well known photographers in pro cycling and they return as Judges once again.
After years of chasing cycling around the globe, their passion for both the sport and their craft has helped elevate them to amongst the best cycling photographers in the world.
