We’re really pleased to announce the winner of the AUTO PHOTO Awards 2023 Creative Impact Award, Phil McGovern. Nominated by members of the automotive photography community, Phil has made a significant impact in the community and industry.

“I was a little bit taken back and honoured at the concept of even having my name suggested within the talent that was announced for the award, along with the past winners. To then find myself as the winner of the AUTO PHOTO Creative Impact Award, is staggering. I’ve been shooting for 25yrs now and along the way stuck true to the way I felt I wanted to freeze time. It was and always will be a story and capturing the adventure along the way in the quirky manner in which I view life. A heart felt thank you to everyone involved.” – Phil McGovern.
