Photographer Of The Year with The Guild Of Photographers for 2018 (also 2017 and 2016)
Having won The Photographer Of The Year with The Guild Of Photographers in 2017 and for the second year running, i was unsure if i was going to carry on entering their monthly competition, but as the awards for 2017 werent held until February I entered in January 'just in case'... well i was crazy pleased to have won for the second year and i did wonder whether or not I should continue, but i did, at a slow pace at first, which to be fair is pretty typical for me, but by the middle of the year I found myself back into a position where I knew I must be up with who I thought was leading and on the final month of entering I hit the jackpot with 3 gold awards for my entries which helped secure another win.
Winning for the 3rd time is no easy feat, The Guild had over 13,000 images submitted over the course of the year, and some amazing images at that, so to win again in 2018 is absolutely incredible.
Not only did I win Photographer Of The Year but I also won the 'All Round' Photographer Of The Year which is the person with the highest points in any 2 catagories, and i also won the Open catagory. i did also come 11th in the People catagory, which isnt my strong side so i was incredibly happy with that.
During the awards weekend that was held at the stunning Crewe hall, I also gave my maiden talk, 'the Life of an I.O.M Junkie' (Image Of the Month) this was in front of my peers and having never done any public speaking i was crazy nervous, but it ssems to have been very well recieved. the talk was about competition submissions from my perspective, along with a bit of my journey. Everyone seemed to be awake at the end so that was a bonus!
My lovely lady was there when I received my awards and Im incredibly grateful to have such an amazingly supportive partner, she puts up with a lot!
