The winners of the Historic Photographer of the Year Awards 2019 have been announced with Stéphane Hurel taking the overall title with an image of the  Arromanches Mulberry Harbour in Normandy.

The 'Historic England' category was won by JP Appleton with his haunting shot of the Victorian era Roker Pier, while 'HISTORY’s Short Filmmaker of the Year' was awarded to Dibs McCallum for a fascinating short documentary exploring the remains of the RAF Barnham nuclear weapons storage facility.

Entries were judged on originality, composition and technical proficiency alongside the story behind the submission and its historical impact. The judging panel of experts included Claudia Kenyatta, Director of Regions for Historic England, broadcaster and historian Dan Snow of History Hit TV, head of the television channel HISTORY Dan Korn, author and digital colourist Marina Amaral, Chairman of the Association for Historical and Fine Art Photography Richard Everett, and co-founder of Trip Historic Elli Lewis.

Commenting on the Awards, judge Dan Snow said: "When it comes to evocative, breath-taking imagery that makes you truly consider the world around you, historic and cultural photography is hard to beat. The wonderful entries we’ve seen in this year’s awards highlight everything from the haunting remains of the Normandy beaches to astonishing shots of ancient forts and exceptional imagery from a lost industrial past. It reminds people that exploring history is an adventure, where you stumble across decaying remnants of the past and remember the incredible stories that took place all around us."

The competition celebrates the very best historic places and cultural sites across the globe and this year's competition attracted a swathe of astonishing entries from amateurs and professionals who have climbed, hiked and trekked their way to snap stunning historic places from every corner of the globe.
