On Saturday 6th February at the Guild of Photographers Awards, I walked away with overall 🏆Image of the Year title !!!! 🍾🥂

Gold award winning photo by Emma Campbell

National and International Photographers Compete

Out of 16,042 images submitted last year, by photographers based in the UK and overseas, the judges awarded ‘Blakerigg’, the gorgeous thoroughbred, as their Image of the Year for 2020!

Top category winners can be found here.

The judges commented that they felt the image portrayed a timeless capture, with incredible detail and showing so much of the character of the subject. The photograph also took Equine Photograph of the Year.

Absolutely can’t believe it! I also took 5th place in International Pet Photographer of the Year, and achieved my Photographers Bar for a third year running.

The night may have been virtual – but The Guild Of Photographers had created a wonderful evening!

Thank you to everyone at The Guild, to my mentor Kevin Pengelly https://pengelly-photography.co.uk, and to Rachel Bastow, Kelly Gale and Brian Harding, for helping me make this photograph possible xx
