Labour photo of the year 2009 – the winner

We have a winner.  3,203 votes were cast in this year’s Labour Photo of the Year competition, our second ever, and the winner by a huge margin was K M Asad’s photo entitled ‘Manual labor’.

Almost half of those voting chose this photo – to see a full breakdown of votes per photo, go here.

A very big thanks to Mac Urata for coming up with the idea last year and for agreeing to be a judge this year and last (and for translating the page into Japanese), to Derek Blackadder for once again coordinating the effort, to judges Gretchen Donart and David Bacon for once again picking an outstanding shortlist, to all the photographers who submitted entries and to the thousands of our readers who looked at them and chose the best.

It looks like this is going to be an annual event and I think our main task next year is to try to make the whole process, from submission of photo right up through the voting a multilingual one, so that all our readers can take part.  (This may mean no longer relying on Flickr — we’ll need to look into this.)
