AFP’s Adrian Dennis has won the UK Picture Editors’ Guild sports photographer of the year award, his tenth photo prize of 2013.
"The last couple of years have been fantastic for me," Dennis said. "I’ve had great assignments and opportunity to shoot many different sports. It is a real honor to capture these photography awards but now my colleagues on the sidelines are taking every chance to tease me about winning. Apparently they want me to retire!"
Dennis studied journalism at the University of Florida and worked for several US publications from 1989 until 1996. On returning to Britain, he worked for the Independent and the Independent on Sunday before joining AFP’s London bureau in 2000.
