Leech described being chosen for the recognition as "the proudest moment of [his] career".
Meanwhile, Park received the Barclays Shot of the 20 Seasons award for his picture of Wayne Rooney's match-winning overhead kick in the Manchester derby.
He said: “For my photo to be chosen as the best shot in the history of the league is very humbling, and something I will cherish for the rest of my career. It was an iconic moment, and one that was seen all over the world, so to capture it in the way that I did was extremely satisfying.”
The pair have been handed a combined total of £15,000 worth of photographic equipment for their efforts.
