I attended the British Life Photography Awards ceremony and awards event last night at the Royal Albert Hall in London. I got a preview of the exhibition which opens to the public for month then tours around the UK (see more details below).

My Ed's Diner image got commended in the Street Life category and was also selected as the cover image for the accompanying book which is available on the BLPA website. The book quality is exceptional and it features all the winners and commended photos.

Ooh, some good news to end the year on... My Ed's Diner photo got commended by the British Life Photography Awards.

British Life Photography Awards - Private View Evening
03rd March 2015 - 0 comments
Winners from the British Life Photography Awards were invited to a special Private View evening at the Mall Galleries in London.

It was great to meet and chat to some of the other winners and to see all the winning entries displayed in the exhibition.

We received a copy of the brilliant British Life Photography Awards Portfolio 1 book which all our photos are featured in.



British Life Photography Awards - Street Life winner
02nd March 2015 - 0 comments
So, I was surfing about on the internet and stumbled across an online photography contest called the British Life Photography Awards. I had heard of them before, but had never entered before as I was either busy doing something else or I missed the entry deadline, etc.

Anyway, last year Spring/Summer I saw there was a street photography category and thought, I'll have a go and sign up, enter a few pics then thought nothing more of it. I actually forgot I had entered.

So, by the time I received a random phone call out of the blue one cold and dark November 2014 evening suggesting I had actually won first place in the Street Life category, I thought it maybe someone's prank until the lady from the BLPAwards at the other end officially described my photo and that she would contact me in writing to officially provide full details of the prize and awards evening next year.

To cut a long story short, I was on strict instruction not to announce my news until it was officially announced by the British Life Photography Awards, which was very difficult for me! But here we are, March 2nd 2015 and I have just seen a article in the Metro newspaper with my street photo included.

I will be going to the Private Evening tonight in fact to collect my prize and meet the other winners.

Check out the photo and the other British Life Photography Award winners on the official BLPA website
