Hannah McKay


Hannah McKay is a staff photographer for Reuters, based in London. She covers a variety of news, sport and features. Hannah's entry contributed to three key stories in the UK throughout 2021 and 2022. The image taken of lone female protester being restrained by faceless male police officers at a vigil for murdered Sarah Everard helped to propel the story into a talking point; it became a symbol of anger and illustrated the importance photographers have in journalism. Her photograph of Boris Johnson jogging with his dog Dilly in Westminster in the early morning during the 'Partygate Scandal', at a time where the Prime Minister was avoiding being seen, was used widely in print and online. It was a rare opportunity to see him in a government controlled environment. The image of the Royal Family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during the Jubilee became one of the last photographs seen of the Queen carrying out a public engagement, and it was well loved at the time it was taken due to Prince Louis's humorous gestures.
