Finalists for 2022 World Athletics Photograph of the Year Announced

The three finalists for the Photographer of the Year award have been selected, with less than a month to go until the 2022 World Athletics Awards.

From the 110 submitted images, a panel of judges – composed of Valerie Adams, Raquel Cavaco Nunes, Ivo Gonzalez, Renaud Lavillenie and Pascal Rondeau – narrowed down the entries to 26 shortlisted images before deciding on the three finalists.

Photographers from 33 countries from all six continental areas submitted entries.

The 25 shortlisted images will be part of a digital exhibit on the World Athletics website, which will go live later this month.

The winning photo will be announced on World Athletics social media platforms in early December as part of the 2022 World Athletics Awards.
