NEWS: Image of Music Awards 2024 winners announced

At a glittering awards ceremony in London this week, the winners of the Image of Music Awards 2024 were announced in a coming together of photographers of all ages and abilities to celebrate the unsung heroes behind the lens. 

After the shortlist was drawn up by’s expert industry panel, thousands of votes were cast online to decide the winner of the prestigious Image of Music ‘People Choice’ Award (Sponsored by Canon). The winner was Fearghal McGlinchey for his incredible shot of Greta Van Fleet’s Josh Kiszka performing at the OVO Arena Wembley, London, which cleverly utilises the onstage pyrotechnics in the background.

Recollecting on his thought process going into the show, Fearghal said: “I decided to watch some of their recent live performances on YouTube, to get a gist for the stage design. As soon as I saw their pyros go off, I thought to myself ‘I HAVE to be in the perfect position for these later on’. Josh’s harmonica even looks like it could be a lighter!”

Fearghal McGlinchey also won Music Photographer of the Year (Sponsored by Affinity 2), while New York-based photographer Grace Prachthauser was crowned the first ever Young Music Photographer of the Year – a new category for 2024 that shines a spotlight on emerging talent under the age of 23. The judges were blown away by Grace’s bold and creative entries that included live shots of Ashnikko, Måneskin and DYLAN.

Announced in the build-up, Jill Furmanovsky was selected as this year’s Legend, who has documented the rise of some of the most legendary rock artists, and graced album covers, music magazines, and books to become recognised all over the world. Across her 50+ year career, Jill is responsible for immortalising many of the defining moments in musical history such as Oasis at Knebworth, Pink Floyd at Live 8 in 2005, and countless intimate portrait shots of Björk, Amy Winehouse, Sinead O’Connor, Charlie Watts and may more.

Vince Bannon, CEO & Co-founder, said: “We are thrilled again to highlight and honour the great work done by music photographers throughout the year. As you can see from the quality of the entries, the standard just keeps getting better.”
