On demand history channel and website History Hit have revealed the winners of Historic Photographer of the Year 2022. In a highly coveted list of photographers, the final list is really quite impressive. The website said that more than 1200 submissions were made. Judges were looking for a mix of originality, composition and technical proficiency alongside the history behind the image. “As always, judging these awards was a highlight for me,” said Dan Snow, Creative Director at History Hit. “It is clear that the stunning entries that make up the shortlist are the product of patience, technical skill, and an awareness of both the past and the present. The creativity and talent on show was second to none. I can’t wait to see what work is entered into next year’s competition.”
And The Winners Are…
Here are some of the winning entries as seen on the photographer’s instagram accounts:
