Yorkshire Region Photography Awards 2010

Yesterday saw the judging and presentation of the Annual Awards of the Yorkshire Region of the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP).  Congratulations to Jay Collingridge whose superb images of a London Underground station won him the Architectural category and overall Commercial title.

I was pleased to win the title of Advertising Photographer of the Year with this food image.

The winning Advertising image

Entries were down in some categories even though the BIPP in Yorkshire has plenty of talented commercial and advertising photographers. Whether this is a reflection of people not having as much work to choose from over the past year (or maybe because they are too busy?), I’m not sure.

In any case the judges don’t have to award any winners if they consider the entries aren’t of a winning standard, so I’m pleased.

You’ll be able to see all the winning images posted in the next few days at the Yorkshire BIPP website. You can see more of my food photography at www.tonymayimages.com
