The winners of the 2021 International Association of Professional Birth Photographers (IABPB) Image of the Year Competition have been announced!
The annual competition celebrates the beauty of birth and the skill of birth photographers around the globe in five categories: labour, delivery, postpartum, birth details, and ‘fresh 48’.
Liz Cook, director of the IABPB, says: “Despite birth photographers worldwide losing a majority of their work and income in 2020 due to the global pandemic, I am thrilled to be able to feature the talent of our members in our annual image competition.”
“We are incredibly proud of the entrants of this year’s competition because in spite of all we endured in our community in recent months, this contest represents the resistance birth photographers have to overcome unforeseen challenges,” she adds.
