Premios Panenka: This is the winning photograph 2022.

IMAGO is pleased to announce the winner for the best photo of 2022: Bagu Blanco from the agency Pressinphoto wins the prestigious award, having taken the best photo of 2022.

The emotionally-charged image perfectly captures the jubilation of Real Madrid's Luka Modrić during the UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool FC, showing the second Modrić throws the trophy in the air out of joy of victory and how the moment is captured by the cameras.


For the ninth year in a row, the Premios Panenka took place to honor those who do great work off the pitch and make football the game it is. With the award for the best photograph of 2022, IMAGO, together with Panenka, honors the impressive work of sports photographers worldwide and shines the spotlight on those behind the camera.


Congratulations to Bagu Blanco and all the nominated photographers who participated this year. More from and about the IMAGO sports photographers can be found on our website.
