I am delighted to tell you I have just gained my first Gold award with SWPP. www.swpp.co.uk
I started entering my work into the monthly competition to push my standards up, and to gain feedback on what I need to improve on and reach the high standard in professional photography.
SWPP are a Worldwide Association of professional photographers. I gain mentoring, qualifications, help and advice from them.
There are 26 categories that cover all aspects of photography and it is judged by some of the most esteemed Fellow, Master and Grand Master photographers in the UK and across the world. All entries which gain the coveted ‘Gold’ award are put forward to our annual judging and, if deemed to be the best, can gain their maker a prestigious ‘Photographer of the Year’ Award within its category at our annual Awards Dinner.
My images are images which I have taken on commissioned sessions.
I have entered into 3 categories this month Baby, Children and Monochrome.
Having received a text from a fellow photographer friend of mine this afternoon saying congratulations on your Gold award, I quickly jumped up off my seat to go and check! I forgot about the awards and was delighted and surprised!
Not only did I gain my first Gold award I also gained 2 Highly commended on my other two images! Happy month for Michelle Sinclair Photography!
Gold: Awards will go forward to the annual judging and are deemed to be images of the highest standard and will be published in Professional Imagemaker
Highly Commended: Above standard. These images will be reviewed every three months and have the potential of being reclassified as Gold.
I would like to thank all my customers for their support and custom.
