I am over the moon this week to have received a Gold Award and Silver Award in the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographer’s (SWPP) monthly competition.  

Gold awards go forward for annual judging by the SWPP and are deemed the highest standard in competition terms.  They are also published in the Professional ImageMaker magazine.  Silver awards are reviewed every three months with the potential of being upgraded to Gold.

The Gold Award was awarded in the Environmental Portraiture category for the following image of my son picking daffodils:-

the next image was awarded a Silver in the Fashion category:-

and here’s the certificate for the Gold Award (which came in the post just as I had typed this!):-
