BIPP Yorkshire Region Awards 2013 17th April 2013

The ever popular print competition awards evening saw a good turnout by current standards, including a sizeable contingent from Kirklees College who had provided a very healthy entry to the Student Compeitition.  The audience were able to see and appreciate the best work offered up for competition in the region this year and an informative commentary on all the work entered.

The 2013 judges were Karl Bratby FBIPP of Nottingham and David Taylor FBIPP from Derbyshire. They provided an interactive and entertaining critique of all the work entered and were impressed by much of the student entry. In general they were looking for impact in winning images as well as a technical excellence and, in the case of people images, very high standards of expression, posing and wow! factor.

Audience input and opinion was invited, although decisions and awards were strictly made by the judges alone. Judging of the two overall titles, to select the two overall winners from all of the category winning images took place in real time at the end of the evening, which is a first and raised the tension levels.

Roy Wooding produced the winning image in three different categories and Leo Francis took the overall title of BIPP Yorkshire Region Social Photographer of the Year 2013 with his winning Studio Portrait image, following on from his success last year in the Commercial category. Tony May took the overall Commercial Photographer of the Year 2013 title.

Congratulations to all Trophy and Merit winners!

The Annual Print Competition attracted just under 200 entries and an appreciative audience at The Owl on April 20th to hear judges Denise Swanson and Russell Baston critique all entries and see the winner's trophies and merit certificates awarded.

Richard Mayfield scooped the overall title of Yorkshire Region Commercial Photographer of the Year 2011 with his winning Fashion image, after winning both the Fashion and Illustrative categories.

Steve Ramsden won the overall title of Yorkshire Region Social Photographer of the Year with his winning image in the Traditional Wedding category.

A thought provoking evening with Paul White

An excellent presentation by Paul White FBIPP showed many fine examples of his architectural photography in locations across the UK coupled with many hints and advice on how to get the best out of the subject.

The main thrust of his talk was the demands on the photographer in the present climate of the ever changing scene, technology, and expectations of clients if they are to survive.
