We’ve Scooped Two Gold Awards at the SWPP’s Monthly Competition
I was delighted and very honoured to hear today that I’d scooped up two Gold Awards in the SWPP’s latest monthly competition for October.
The SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Professionals) runs a national competition each month over a range of different categories. The Gold Award winning images will go forward to the SWPP’s Annual competition to be held at their Convention in London during January.
I was particularly delighted to note that one of the Gold’s was in the category for Wedding Photojournalism which is my chosen discipline of wedding photography.
According to the SWPP’s judging criteria, images awarded Gold are deemed to be “images of the highest standard”. The images are also showcased in the Society’s monthly magazine, Professional Imagemaker.
The Wedding Photojournalism image was from Dean and Nina’s recent wedding and is entitled “Three Layers of Love”.
The other winning Gold image was for some personal work of mine and this was in the Travel Category.
Both images are particular favourites of mine so it was great to see that the judges agreed.
I also won a further two silver awards in the portrait categories and another silver for my landscape work.
So all in all a nice way to start the weekend!
