I am more than delighted to announce that this month I have won an award! Today I have found out that my image of the lovely Lissy in a field of golden buttercups in Mellor in the Ribble Valley has achieved a Bronze Award in the Guild of Professional Photographers Image of the Month competition, which typically attracts over 1000 entries each month!
The Guild of Photographers is a highly regarded national photographic body and its members are dedicated to enhancing their skills in the art, craft and profession of photography.
They are committed to achieving the highest standards of professionalism for the benefit of their customers. They pledge themselves to delivering the highest standards of customer service and to a journey of continuing professional development.
The Guild has very demanding standards when judging photographic competitions. In fact, the judging is undertaken by a panel of internationally recognised experts from a variety of photographic backgrounds, so, they say, it is an achievement to be, quite rightly, proud of!
I started entering some of my images a couple of months ago, and I’m thrilled this image has been recognised. Its a perfect example of how I use the beautiful Lancashire countryside as a backdrop for beautiful and colourful children’s portraits.
