WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET
A FEW HUNDRED INFLUENTIAL
photographers and industry creatives together at
the PDN Photo Annual party? We've put together
some of the photos that made the night so special.
The PDN Photo Annual has played an influential role in the photography industry as one
of the pivotal photography competitions since
it's inception in 2001. For the past five years,
Tribeca Skyline Studios and Tribeca Rooftop
have hosted the Annual party, where we honor
the winning photographers and their work.
This year, in addition to the winners selected
by the Annual jury, special awards were given
out to selected photographers by the sponsors
of the Annual. Gonzaga Manso was honored
by Adobe; Sebastiano Tomada Piccolomini
and Souvid Datta were honored by The Marty
Forscher Fellowship Fund; Jeremy Underwood,
Andrew Lyman and Antony Sojka were honored
by Duggal; Ilona Szwarc was honored by The
Arnold & Augusta Newman Foundation and
Paolo Marchetti was honored by Epson.
In addition, we had the opportunity to award
the PDN Publisher's Choice Award for a second
year, this time to photojournalists Ed Kashi and
Julie Winokur. Educator Mary Virginia Swanson
received an unexpected surprise when she was
awarded a grant from ASMP for her continued
advocacy for young photographers.
Following the awards ceremony, attendees enjoyed a pop-up Profoto studio shoot, a
Smile Booth .gif booth and enjoyed the beautiful nighttime views of New York City on the
Tribeca Rooftop. We thank our sponsors and
our attendees for supporting and celebrating
the Annual with us and making the night a truly
exceptional experience for all.
