2020 Quills: Sports Photograph

Jason Edwards of the Herald Sun has won the 2020 Sports Photograph Quill.

Judges' citation

The outstanding image of rock climber Tom Perkins was taken in complete darkness. Climbing under these conditions is unbelievably hard and dangerous, with the climber having to make every move by memory. The judging panel thought while it was a technically difficult photo to take Jason had captured it well, shining a light on a sport that requires both mental and physical toughness.
