Mark Gunter (June 10, 1974 – November 29, 2015) was a widely respected photographer in the cycling community, and his loss has been felt by many.
In partnership with Mark’s wife, Leeanne Gatien, we wanted to honour Mark and let his name live on through an award that would grow in prestige every year. So in 2016, we launched the Mark Gunter Photographer of the Year Awards – a way of commemorating Mark’s contribution to the community and to showcase the best cycling photographs of each year. The inaugural edition was an incredible success, with some amazing submissions. We can’t wait to see what this year has in store!
The funds raised through this competition will be donated towards cancer research through Australian Cancer Research Foundation, Tour de Cure, and financially help promising young cyclists through Young Cyclist Assistance.
