An aerial shot of NYC tops the travel category

Italian-born Kitty Cohen won the travel category with her aerial image of New York, snapped from the 32nd storey of a hotel at 5am on an August morning.

The most incredible images from the Photographer Of The Year Awards

The nominees are in for the Societies of Photographers 2017 Photographer Of The Year Awards – and they are breathtaking.

Almost 8,500 images, featuring desperate refugees reaching out for help, stunning wildlife and a rather nail-biting image of a raging bull have been organised into 26 categories for the prestigious awards.

The photographs were captured all over the world, although British photographers did well, especially when it came to animal and wildlife photographer.
