Awards Showcase: OCNA 2021 Photographer of the Year

Congratulations to the 2021 winners in the Photographer of the Year category!1st place: #RichmondHill #Thornhill Liberal – Steve Somerville“Each and every photo submitted by Steve Somerville is a winner. The woman in the window captures the COVID restrictions so well. The shot in the yoga studio is on another level. He brilliantly captures the solemn intimacy of the night vigil, as well as the innocence of the little protester who is just along for the ride. Congratulations.”2nd place: @oakvillebeaver – Graham Paine“Graham Paine surely has an eye for a great photo and the skills to take one – over and over again. Keep up the good work.”3rd place: #Niagara @niagaraonthelakereport – Richard Harley“In any other year, Richard Harley could have easily been named Photographer of the Year. His strong submissions are part of a surely great portfolio. Congratulations.”The 2021 awards showcase the hard work, talent, and dedication demonstrated by Ontario publishers, editors, reporters, photographers, and designers.
