Meet the judges… Caroline Metcalfe

Caroline, former Director of Photography at Condé Nast Traveller UK, and a long-time TPOTY judge, gives her insights into how she selects photographers for commissions and eye-catching TPOTY entries.

After university I got a job as an editorial assistant with a magazine called Now! It was back in 1981 and it was a British version of Time/Newsweek owned by Sir Jimmy Goldsmith. I worked with the political team but occasionally, on a big story, I was asked to join the photo department. It was a brilliant introduction to storytelling through pictures, to photojournalism. I was hooked.
