2018 Competition Entries

During 2018 – 2019 I intend to create images for competitions. My aim is to win an award, I might as well aim for the top because that’s the only way you can get somewhere close!

Wildlife Competition

I had the extraordinary experience of a squirrel climbing up my leg recently and luckily I had my camera round my neck at the time! If I can find a wildlife competition with a category to suit I might enter this:

KOOKIE Magazine WON!!

This isn’t an award for myself but as the front cover photographer for the magazine I was thrilled when in November 2018 it received LAUNCH OF THE YEAR at the British Society Of Magazine Editors Awards in London:

Unfortunately I wasn’t at the ceremony to see it win, or my front cover image displayed on the huge screens as they announced the winner. BUT I’m utterly thrilled all the same and so proud of what Vivien Jones & Nicky Shortridge have achieved since the first edition this time last year.

We are now on to the 5th edition ready for Christmas and have the 6th edition in the pipeline too…… It’s very exciting on the KOOKIE front 😀

 

 

 

SWPP | April Competition

I have entered my ‘Earth’ Image into the SWPP Monthly competition. I never enter into competitions but it seems to be a good way of improving your status. Lots of photographers class themselves as ‘Award Winning’ which is an attractive title to prospective clients. So I’ve been brave and submitted for the April 2018 Newborn Competition….. I’ll try and not cry if I don’t get anything ha.
