本年度的新聞年度圖片殊榮,由《 端傳媒 》葉家豪奪得,得獎作品為「麥難⺠」。評審團認為, 這張照片指向了香港極為特殊的狀況,引人反思。快餐店成為社會中的避風港、基層市⺠的依靠 ,更展現出包容弱勢社群的感覺。照片意識豐富,所表達的訊息不單是「土地問題」,思考空間 較大,有社會內容。事件雖然並非爆炸性的新聞事件,但照片呈現的事件⻑遠及深遠,甚為耐看 。另外,照片的視覺效果及新聞元素的分佈、構圖、光調等, 都有上佳的平衡。基於以上各種考 慮,故選為年度圖片。

整體而言,評審團認為,年度相片及圖輯組冠軍都不約而同地間接呼應社會。各位攝影記者以其 獨特的表現方法, 記錄社會的人和事 。雖然從眾多作品見到採訪環境充滿挑戰,但仍希望攝影記 者能夠繼續以影像,捕捉社會不同的角落。

《前線‧焦點》新聞攝影比賽為一年一度全港最大型的新聞攝影比賽,最早於 1993 年開始舉辦, 為本港同類比賽中規模最大的一個。所有得獎新聞照片,均由香港專業的攝影記者拍攝及經評判 精挑細選,務求向社會大眾展示具歷史意義,又兼具新聞和藝術價值的攝影作品。希冀加深市⺠ 對時事的關注認識,提昇大眾對攝影記者和傳媒的工作的認同, 同時表揚各得獎攝影記者室過去 一年對業界的努力和貢獻。

The “Photo of the Year” was awarded to the “McRefugees” photograph taken by Sam Yip Ka Ho of Initium. The jury feels the image best portrays the unique situation that Hong Kong is currently facing and provokes many thoughts. The image well documented the humanity and acceptance towards the underprivileged groups from the city. There is a deeper message

captured by the image beyond the usual “land problems” that a lot of people face everyday. Although this is not an image with shocking visual, but it definitely has a deeper and longer impact to everyone. Furthermore, there is a balance between the visual effect and news elements distributed in the image, such as composition and tone.

Overall, the jury feels there is a resonance with the community in the “Photo of the Year” and the winner of the photo story. Despite many harsh conditions that we witnessed when reviewing photos in the competition, they still hope photojournalists will continue to use their own unique and special method to tell stories of different events and people in the city.
