Professional Photographer magazine today announced the shortlist for the prestigious, annual Professional Photographer Of The Year (PPOTY) awards. The 2011 competition has seen a huge increase in interest with over 6300 entries, more than six times as many as the year before!

I win the first prize in Editorial News Category with the picture of Gaddafi's body, taken the day of his death in a private house in Misurata.

During the celebration night, I was awarded by Paul Sanders, the former Picture Editor for The Times.
