2014 Photography Annual

This year’s photography competition saw a slight increase in entries (5,223) but a substantial increase in the number of projects selected by our jury (154). Categories with the strongest growth were advertising, books and editorial.

“This was a diverse collection of images, from highly technical to low-resolution,” juror Laurie Frankel said. “But a great idea comes through no matter what the execution may be.”

“I was really impressed with the editorial work,” said juror Jimmy Bonner. “Some of the photographs of human injustices and tragedies were difficult to look at, but they speak such truth about the world in which we live, they had to be included in the Annual.”

“I tended to respond to simpler, more daring approaches for the commercial work,” juror Tim Hartford said. “Photography can be a tool for carving out a unique, ownable brand vision and voice.”

"The end results were very impressive. In each category, from documentary to conceptual, I looked for images that would stand up years from now."
