Sergey Ponomarev is a Russian Moscow-based photojournalist. In 2016 he shared a Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography with Mauricio Lima, Tyler Hicks, and Daniel Etter "For photographs that captured the resolve of refugees, the perils of their journeys and the struggle of host countries to take them in." Specifically, their coverage of the European migrant crisis, produced for The New York Times, was cited.

Ponomarev was born in Moscow and graduated from Moscow State University and from Academy of Labour and Social Relations. Between 2003 and 2012 he worked for Associated Press, subsequently starting his career as freelance photographer. In 2015, he won the third prize of the World Press Photo award in the General News category for his photos of Gaza conflict. In 2016, he won the first prize in the same category for the European migrant crisis photos.

He is a frequent contributor to the New York Times. In 2015, the New York Times asked Ponomaryov to go to Greece and to photograph the landings of the refugees. Subsequently, he followed the refugees on their way to Western Europe, spending in total five months on the project.
