Photo Award Success
I'm delighted to learn that I have won the 2010 Sport - Ball Games Photographer of the Year award, issued by The Societies, a group of 8 worldwide photographic societies that include the Society of International Sport & Leisure Photographers, of which I'm a member.
I won it with my pic taken at the Scotland vs England Six Nations Championship match in March 2010. I was also a runner up in the general sports category with my cycling pic taken at the Caithness Cycling Club's annual racing weekend. Both feature in a book that shows all of the 200 shortlisted photos from the 34 categories. There were over 18,000 entries submitted.
I could not attend the awards dinner in London and the glass trophy arrived in the post today.
