Overall Winner: Naomi Osaka by David Grey

The photo was taken at the 2021 Australian Open and shows Ms Osaka, Japan’s four-time Grand Slam winner, give a helping hand to a stray butterfly when it landed on her.
“This is a breathtaking image,” said the competition’s co-founder, Simon Burton. 

“Sports Photography captures special moments and tells unique stories, but most of all it draws you in and reveals the unexpected. It forces you to look again and reconsider.”
