The Press Photographers Association of Ireland’s annual Press Photographer of the Year Awards will take place on February 18.
The ceremony, which is in its 44th year, will be presented online by broadcaster Miriam O’Callaghan.
The awards, which are open to press photographers from across the country, are traditionally announced at a gala awards ceremony that takes place in Dublin.
However, due to the pandemic, the awards will be announced online again this year, showcasing the very best of Irish press photography to a worldwide audience.
The virtual awards will also feature special pre-recorded messages from a host of well-known Irish figures and personalities.
This year saw almost 1,400 entries from 100 photographers across the 10 award categories.
Judging for the awards was deliberated online last weekend and was led by chair of the judging panel, former Irish Times picture editor, Frank Miller.
The president of the Press Photographers Association of Ireland said: “Our Awards recognise and reward the hard work, dedication and skill of our Irish press photographers who have persevered through another year dominated once again by the pandemic.
“Our members have beautifully captured all aspects of life throughout the year and created a stunning visual record of 2021.”
