Congratulations to Konstantinos Tsakalidis for winning this years Siena international Photography Awards, “Photographer of the Year”.
The winning photo, “Woman from Evia”, was revealed at this years Siena Awards Ceremony on Saturday 1st October at the Teatro Dei Rinnovati theatre.
Tsakalidis’s picture captures the desperation of Kritsiopi Panayiota, an 81-year-old woman, as the flames approach her home during the devastating forest fires in the summer 2021 causing extensive environmental damage.
Since 2015, the Siena International Photo Awards has stood out as being one of the most prestigious photographic competitions in the world, with an annual participation of photographers from more than 150 countries around the world.
This year’s winning photographs can be viewed at the SIPA website - https://sipacontest.com/gallery/2022
The pictures are also on show at various exhibitions around Siena. This year there is a “Hall of Fame” section featuring the photographers that have won in previous years. The Hall of Fame was created to recognise the value of those who have believed in the importance of the project since the first edition of the Siena International Photo Awards.
It is an honour to have my name amongst such esteemed photographers and a pleasure to be part of the wider SIENA Awards family.
