Photographer of the Year 2024 is André Boto

FEP Professional Photographer of the Year 2024 is André Boto!

This is history in the making: in 2023 Portuguese photographer André Boto became the first photographer to have won the FEP Awards two times, but now he writes history again and becomes the first photographer to win it back to back and now overall a whopping three times!

More than 330 European photographers submitted over 3300 images for the FEP Awards and we wish to thank you all for the belief you have in our work and our mission of celebrating the most talented photographers of Europe.

As always, it was not an easy task for our Chairman Johan Brouwers and his team of international judges to go through and evaluate all of the images entered, but as every year, they worked hard to complete their task and we can now see the results of their work. So once more a heartfelt thanks to our judges! You can read more about our judges here.

Chairman Brouwers comments: “This year marks the first time we have implemented in-depth checking of all the finalists’ raw files. Our aim is to uphold the principles of pure photography, with an absolute minimal use of AI and stock images in the few categories that allow this. By prioritizing authenticity and integrity, we ensure that each winning image is a true reflection of the photographer’s skill and vision.”

In 2024 the FEP Awards took place in Ålesund, Norway. The biggest winner of the evening was obviously our overall winner André Boto, but several other photographers excelled as well. Here’s a few examples: Arun Mohanraj from UK won 2 Golden Cameras and 1 Silver Camera, Wolfgang Gangl from Austria won a Golden Camera, a Silver Camera and a 5th place in three different categories, Luís Godinho of Portugal and Hannu Rainamo of Finland won each their 6th consecutive medal position in their respective categories and Pia Maria Rautio went home with her 4th consecutive People and Portrait Golden Camera. Well done everybody!

The Chairman commented: “Even with a multiple Golden Camera winner, the competition was again extremely thrilling. As last year, we had to wait until the very last vote came in before it was clear who the overall winner would be.”
