The winning images from the Storm Photo of the Year Awards have been announced. All the images were taken over the course of 2021, and the competition is divided into three categories: Photo of the Year, Tornado Photo of the Year and Photographer of the Year. The first two sought to find the most incredible, single photos taken from the prior year in their respective categories. And the third (portfolio) award looked to recognize the achievement of putting together an amazing set of 10 images taken in 2021.
There are some pretty impressive images, some of the tornado shots are quite incredible considering the fact that most of us would be turning to run in the opposite direction. But Storm Chasers are an entirely different breed it seems. You can see the top winning entries below.
