You may search the archive by photographer, photographer’s nationality, the agency or publication involved, for photos that have won specific prizes, or according to one of the themed categories into which the archive is arranged. These are explained on the This Site page. In the Category box, you will also find the option to search by individual awards (named and one-off prizes), and for photos that have received a special mention.
The results of your search will be presented as a series of thumbnails. A column to the right of the screen offers various ways to refine your search. An alternative view will provide basic photo credits and information about the contest category and prize the photo won. You can zoom in by clicking on specific photos. Clicking on the Photo information button will provide further details, when known, and a caption.
