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!

In May 2018 I entered The Society of Photographers monthly competition in the newborn category again with this image, unfortunately no award this time.
November 2018 Submission
In November 2018 I entered The Society of Photographers monthly competition in the newborn category again with this image, unfortunately no award this time.
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 😀
