Gold and Silver Awards in the November SWPP International Awards for Weddings & Travel Photography

I was absolutely delighted and very honoured to find that not only had one of my Wedding Photojournalism images from earlier this year (which originally was awarded Silver in the SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers) July International Monthly Competition) been upgraded to a Gold Award (this is the highest accolade as they are judged against several hundred monthly entries from all over the world).
Also one of my Travel Photography images from Madagascar was awarded Gold in November too!

Both of these Gold: Awards will now go forward to the annual judging and are deemed to be images of the highest standard and will be published in Professional Imagemaker next month.

In addition I was really happy to get a Silver Award for another Photojournalist Reportage Image shot at a summer wedding. The best man had daubed HELP on the bottom of the grooms shoes which caused much giggling from the wedding guests in the church and the bride wondering what was up couldn’t resist taking a look!, luckily I was totally on the ball and waited for the perfect moment to press the shutter. What makes this particularly nice is that it is one of Darren & Therea’s favourite images and is laid out as a full bleed page in their gorgeous 15×15 inch Queensberry DUO wedding album that arrived yesterday, can’t wait for them to see it,: Silver: Awards are for images that are deemed by the judges to be above standard.

Silver images are reviewed every three months and have the potential of being reclassified as Gold as my image of the little blonde boy peaking out of the pew was (above)

I was also really pleased to get a further 5 Bronze: Awards for November in the Wildlife, Wedding Traditional, Pictoral, Children and Landscape categories so all in all a fabulous month, especially I as also got 4 Bronze Awards in October!!
