It’s a Triumph: FUJIFILM Wins Top 2 World Press Photo Awards and Even More… Despite not Being Full Frame ;)

Share

Forget TIPA… there are other awards that count!

And I must come back to talk about the World Press Photo Awards, because we missed to highlight something in our previous post here.

In fact, not only Yasuyoshi Chiba won the World Press Photo Award with an image he took with his Fujifilm X-H1.

But in the stories categories, it was Romain Laurendeau to win, with his Fujifilm X100 series cameras.

Hence, the top 2 World Press Photo awards go all to fellow Fujifilm X shooters!

  • World Press Photo of the Year – Yasuyoshi Chiba – Fujifilm X-H1
  • World Press Photo Story of the Year – Romain Laurendeau – Fujifilm X100, X100T, X100S

And if that’s not good enough, Fujifilm X shooters won the first, second and third prize also in other categories!

Hey Jared… are you really sure about that Fuji, LOL? ;)
