One More National Award Winning Image - It's Not Easy

May 22, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

No competitions since the start of the year, so I entered last month, with what I thought was a good chance of a getting a solid high award and possibly even a Silver. Funnily enough, the image that I thought would score well was not awarded at national competition level - it just goes to show how tough these competitions are! Here is the image from Claire and Jan's wedding at Grims Dyke Hotel that I thought had a very good chance of doing well - it remains one of my favourite bridal images. It was classified, meaning "images of a standard worthy of acknowledgement relevant to the genre entered but which are not deemed award winning at national competition level".

Happily though, another image that I knew would do well, I think due in large part due to the couple's beautiful expressions, scored me an award at national Bronze level, "images of a strong standard at a national competition level (something to be proud of)". You can feel the love in this image. Thank you to Claire and Jan for being so amazing to photograph!
