The Royal Photographic Society has announced the recipients of its annual awards at a ceremony held yesterday, 6 September 2012, at the Royal Society, London. The awards, which are supported by The Macallan, recognise individuals who have made significant contributions to the art and science of photography. They have been given since 1878.

Winner of the Progress Medal is Steven J Sasson, who is awarded for his work on the invention of the digital camera which he developed whilst working for Eastman Kodak in 1975.

The Centenary Medal is awarded to Joel Meyerowitz, who was an early exponent of colour photography in 1962 and documented the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 World Trade Centre Attack.

The award for Outstanding Service to Photography went to Kathy Ryan, for advancing visual boundaries at the New York Times Magazine.

A full list of the award winners can be found on the RPS website.
