We have recently returned from a successful trip to the annual awards ceremony for Scotland’s professional photographers. The event for the Master Photographers Association Scotland was held at the prestigious Dunblane Hydro and is only open to qualified, full time professional photographers, so you are competing with the best in the industry.
There was a record number of entries this year with almost 1000 images submitted by photographers from up and down the country.
So, how did we get on? Well, we are delighted to announce that we won 6 awards, including an Award of Excellence for a beautiful wedding picture taken on a windswept Saligo beach on the island of Islay last year.
We also won awards for our portrait work including overall winner and 2nd place in the Cherubs Folio category. This is the 4th time we have won this particular award, confirming our ability to produce a consistently high standard of baby portraits over a series of sessions.
All of the pictures are entered anonymously and with the exception of one category the awards are judged by a panel of professional photographers, from out with Scotland.
The Consumer Award is not judged by the professionals but is judged by a member of the public instead. They choose what they regard is the best picture out of all of the 980 entries. As this is an overall award and is judged on appeal it has always been an award we have wanted to win. Yes, and you guessed it we did ! !
We also won awards in the ‘Individual Cherub’ and in the ’Open‘ categories.
