SWPP & BPPA awards for Nov

Upgraded from silver to gold - Scotland vs England at Murrayfield in March 2010

Upgraded from silver to gold - Caithness Cycling Club Racing weekend in May 2010

silver award - Swallow Falls near Betws-y-Coed, Wales

silver award - O'Neill Cold Water Classic international surfing event at Thurso in April 2010
 The Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers (SWPP) and the British Professional Photographers Associates (BPPA) announced their awards for November and I received 2 silvers and 2 gold upgrades.

I was also informed that my two gold upgrades have been shortlisted for the Photographer of the Year awards, due to be held in London in January (http://www.swpp.co.uk/convention/awards_night.htm). Only the best three pics in each of the three sports categories (ball, general and motors) are selected for the finals.  The Societies have thousands of members from all over the world, so I'm totally chuffed at being chosen.

The rugby pic is also being shown in a national projected image exhibition after gaining a merit award in the Dingwall Camera Club annual competition. Only 27 pics out of around 2,500 entries from all over the UK gained merits.
