Published each November, 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.

This year, for the first time, the Photography Annual was free to enter. We did this so that we can celebrate the best work, wherever it may be. 

Drawing on the entered work, nominations and their own expertise, our panel of judges curated the best work for the Photography Annual, making it the definitive showcase of the most powerful, innovative and memorable imagery of the year.
