The votes have been counted, now find out what you consider to be the best you can buy. 

We love kit and from the response to our Awards, we’re pretty sure you do too. Below are products that Photography News readers chose to be winners across a wide range of product categories and services. In some categories, there were very clear winners while in others there was little to choose between products with only a few votes separating the winner from the shortlisted.

This year’s Awards will be presented on the Photography News stand at The Photography Show, taking place 17 to 20 March at the Birmingham NEC. The PN stand will be in the food gallery area, so if you are passing, please feel free to stop by to say hello. Thanks for your generous support of this year’s Awards.
