Well – it’s official! The latest copy of Professional Photographer magazine has just come dropped on my doormat, announcing entries for their Professional Photographer Of The Year 2013 competition – and I’m one of the four judges.

I’m deeply humbled and honoured to be part of such an esteemed publication – my constant source of reading all things professional in the photographic world ever since I was at College – and now I’m part of the editorial judging team for the competition. Wow!

It really means a lot to me this one, and I’m really looking forward to seeing the quality of entries for the various categories over the next few months. If you are a photographer – go for it! This competition carries so much kudos, and the depth and breadth of the entries – in all categories – is just amazing!

I’m obviously interested in the entries for the Weddings category – just to witness the quality of work from fellow wedding photographers from all over the world, and see their stunning work ‘on the table’…

Good luck to those of you entering this year’s PPOTY…and sorry, no bribes accepted! 😉


Looking at the work from this Year’s overall winner (I won’t name him here – just in case!!), you’ll see why the competition is so respected. The winning image for 2012 is just incredible, and one of those shots every wedding photographer would want in their folio. Check it out in this month’s issue and see for yourself.

So, get those entries uploaded to the PPOTY website – and it’s onwards and upwards for me, and looking forward to the finals!
