  1. Would be nice if they credited the photographers next to the winning images…

  2. Congratulations to Uriel Sinai from Getty Images! Even in this tough economic climate, it’s great to see companies pushing forward rather than backing into their shell. Getty has been active with the recent acquisition of Redferns music archive and fantasic new partnerships with BuzzFoto and Brian Duffy. Keep up the good work!
