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.

The East Anglian Daily Times, here in the UK, have run a three-page profile in their weekend supplement on my work, background and recent awards.

We talked about how I gained an interest in photography all those years ago, ideas behind the photographs, some of the challenges encountered and other topics.  The article featured many images, including those from the Behind The Eyes series and seascapes.

Very many thanks to Arts Editor Andrew Clarke and the EADT for putting together a great article!

Here’s a link to my 20-image panel which I submitted during the summer (2010) to the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) for my Associateship qualification.  It has a number of themes all held together with a similar style and two weeks ago was awarded the BIPP Peter Grugeon Award for best Associateship panel.
