The Amateur Photographer Awards have recognised the best photographic equipment for 39 years. The winners of the Amateur Photographer Awards 2016 were announced on 4th February.
The Awards were split into different categories for cameras, software, printers, accessories, lenses etc, as well as the Good Service Awards for retailers. This recognises retailers who have been commended as giving great sales and after sales service.
There was also a grand prize for the all-important Amateur Photographer Reader Nominated Product of the Year.
Two personal awards were presented to those who have produced exceptional photography and contributed greatly to photography with a Power of Photography award and an Exceptional Achievement in Photography award.
