Tönjes, the editor of St. Georg magazine, is a two-time winner, having won the award in 2013.

Each of the winners receives an Alltech “A+” award and a $500 prize.

The highly competitive contest, which attracted entries from around the world, was judged by Grania Willis, FEI communications director, Alan Smith, former Daily Telegraph equestrian correspondent and photographer Peter Llewellyn, photo manager for the 2012 London Olympics and 2015 Pan Am Games (Toronto). 

“We witnessed tremendous equestrian athleticism and dedication during the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy, but behind the scenes there were some heroes. Those heroes were the journalists in the press center, who battled the elements and survived on very little sleep in order to deliver the triumphant stories and unforgettable images of the Games to fans throughout the world,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “We are delighted to honor these equestrian sport journalists for their passionate dedication and skilled storytelling.”

“The IAEJ is extremely grateful to Alltech for its continued recognition of the media and its contribution to equestrian sport,” said Pamela Young, IAEJ president. “Alltech’s generous support for these awards is much appreciated by our members who work tirelessly to convey the passion and beauty of our sport worldwide.”
