Annie Leibovitz - Annie Leibovitz Wins Prince Of Asturias Award

Acclaimed photographer Annie Leibovitz has been awarded one of Spain's prestigious Prince of Asturias prizes.

The American snapper has won the 2013 Prince of Asturias accolade for Communication and Humanities for being a "driving force" in her field and producing images that "reflect an era of politics, literature, film, music and sport".

Leibovitz, whose best-known work includes shots of a pregnant Demi Moore and John Lennon naked, will receive a $62,000 (£40,000) grant at a ceremony in October (13).

The Communication and Humanities accolade has previously been bestowed on novelist Umberto Eco, The National Geographic Society and Google for promoting the "humanistic values that form part of mankind's universal heritage".

Amour director Michael Haneke won this year's (13) Prince of Asturias arts prize for his "relentless, personal exposure of reality".
