CWA Photo of the Year Competition 2024 – Winners Announced

1 min read

We have had a fantastic selection of entries for this year’s photo competition, with images that have taken us all over the world, and back in time. With subjects ranging from famous monuments and spectacular heritage sites to places of hidden archaeological importance, the impressive array of photos submitted for this year’s competition highlights the many different ways we encounter and explore the past. Archaeological photographer Adam Stanford, of SUMO Services, served as our judge and cast his expert eye over the entries. The results were announced at the Current Archaeology Awards ceremony in February.

This year’s overall winner is Rafael Ruiz Fuente’s photo of the Neolithic Dolmen of Guadalperal in Cáceres, Spain.

The winning photo was on display at the CA Live! 2024 conference at the UCL Institute of Education in London, alongside our three runners-up (presented here in alphabetical order).

First, we have Andrew Smith’s photo of Castle Tioram, a ruined ancient fortress that sits on a rocky tidal island in Loch Moidart, Highland, Scotland.

Another of the runners-up is Dmitry Skvortsov, with a photo of Isla del Sol, a Bolivian island in the southern part of Lake Titicaca, which is home to over 80 archaeological ruins, mostly dating to the Inca period.

Our third runner-up is Engr Asmar Hussain, whose photo shows the Makli Graveyard in Thatta, Pakistan, which is one of the largest funerary sites in the world.

Well done to the winners, and thank you to all who entered; we’ve loved seeing your work. Keep an eye out for details about the CWA Photo Competition 2025, coming later this year. We look forward to seeing your entries!
