I have just had a great email and thought I would share it with you.
I recently submitted some photos for the UK Analogue Awards.
This new award aims to celebrate film photography in all its glory, reclaiming analogue photography as something that’s more than just an effect on your iPhone, or a vintage filter on photoshop. This new award champions film photography as a powerfully creative medium for artistic expression. Photographer’s from all across the UK are eligible to submit their work, whether young or old, professional or amateur, and the winning submissions will be selected by Lomography and this year’s committee. All those who have made the cut will have their photographs displayed as part of a weeklong exhibition hosted by DONT WALK in Edinburgh, where members of the press and the wider public will be invited to browse through and purchase prints of the best submissions. Though prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place, the winning photographer will be interviewed by a number of blogs and magazines including Pictures Music and Lomography amongst others.
I am hugely grateful and proud to say I have been shortlisted. There were 650 entries and they shortlisted 10 people. So I am very happy. Thank you for all your kind words and support. Sorry to all of my friends for probably boring them about it!
Its been a great day as not only has this all been confirmed but a photo from my dishwashed roll made it on Flickrs explore page.
