February 10, 2011

I’m very pleased to announce some terrific news.  The results of the highly competitive European Fine Art Photograph of the Year Award 2010 have been released and I have won Third Place!

The competition is run by the Federation of European Photographers (FEP) across 20 countries and received nearly 300 images from members of 23 professional associations.  The photographs were shortlisted to 15 finalists a couple of weeks ago.

My win is for the “Sentinel” photograph, a zig-zag sea defence groyne, taken in North Norfolk here in the UK.

I would very much like to thank the FEP and the judges for awarding my photograph this prestigious prize.
