Action Images were celebrating this weekend after one of their photographers, Andrew Boyers, took the top spot in the prestigious ‘Sports Picture of the Year’ category at the 5th annual National Association of Press Agencies (NAPA) Awards.
The winning image (right) was taken at ICC World Twenty20 tournament last June and shows Australia batsman Brad Haddin closing his eyes in resignation as his wicket is shattered by Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga.
