For a second time, the overall award of Photographer of the Year went to Dr Fong Chan Onn from Malaysia. Discussing the winning photo, judges commented, “This image and its huge impact held the judges’ attention for a long time. You can almost smell the smoke in the room. A travel image that will stand the test of time.”
