The winners of the Historic Photographer of the Year Awards were unveiled today and the overall winning image, captured by Daniel Burton, is of the medieval island commune at Mont Saint-Michel.

The Awards celebrate the very best historic places and cultural sites across the globe, from famous national treasures to the most obscure hidden gems, and this is the second year the competition has run, introducing several new categories and receiving a record number of entries.

The 2018 awards saw the introduction of an English History category, in partnership with Historic England, the Ancient History category in partnership with the television channel HISTORY and 'Short Filmmaker of the Year'. These categories were won by David Ross with a shot of the ruins of the Callanish Stone Circle (Ancient History), Mark Edwards with his 'Red Sands Sea Forts' image (English History) and Jason Davidson whose short film showcases the fascinating story of Crewe Railway Works.

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 broadcaster and historian Dan Snow of History Hit TV, Co-Founder of Trip Historic Elli Lewis, Head of HISTORY Dan Korn, Chairman of the Association for Historical and Fine Art Photography Richard Everett and Duncan Wilson, CEO of Historic England.

Commenting on the Awards, judge Dan Snow said: "Historic and cultural sites are among the most picturesque places on the planet and the very best shots demand not only time and patience but also a willingness to get off the beaten track and frame their place in history in a unique and personal way. This year’s winning entries and submissions perfectly showcase just how stunning the history all around us can be and will doubtless encourage people to get out there and see these amazing places for themselves."
