Winners of the ’21’ Historical Photographer of the Year competition were revealed in London on Tuesday evening.

Voting for the photograph with the highest number of votes closed earlier this month. Eighteen finalists were selected to compete in the finals and one of them emerged victorious.

Winners will be honored at the Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York on October 18, and given certificates of prize recognition.

Age award winners range from two-year-olds to 110-year-olds. Entries were presented to judges before Christmas and they saw over 2,000 pictures.

All ten winning photographs depict historical figures, some are artistic depictions of life behind the scenes, while others are simply portraits taken as the photographer happened upon them.

Hindu Goddess Kali, for example, was also one of the judges’ favorites this year.

“Hindu Goddess Kali is a universal representation of strength,” said judging judge Gajendra Omble, creative director of Media Arts Consulting. “As a happy Hindu goddess, she is an appropriate background backdrop to showcase the emotive qualities of a photograph.”

Other category winners include ’27’ for ‘Winners’ Choice’ and ’84’ for ‘Most Unique.

Previous award winners included Dale Struhon for ‘Worlds Apart’ and Robert Clark’s “Palladio dei Mittonis.”
