Photographer of the Year Awards

03rd February 2014



I have to say the 31st of January was probably (for personal achievements) one of the best nights in my entire life..!!
I've been a member of the Guild of Photographers for just over a year and have entered images into their Image of the Month competitions all year.. Each one being judged expertly by the panel of judges and given marks out of 100 and those scoring over 71 points are awarded either a bronze, Silver, gold or platinum Bar. (no one so far has been awarded Platinum, so maybe something to work for) lol...

The Awards Ceremony took place at the stunning Crewe Hall, we had a wonderful meal and I got to meet many wonderful people that I've been chatting to these last few months but never had met..!!
Then the evening got very exciting as the awards were announced, it was the turn of the 'Open' category Photographer of the Year and there was 10 top places available..

I am absolutely thrilled, (shocked) and very proud (tbh words can't describe it) to have been awarded 4th place in the Photographer of the Year 2013 competition..!!!
It certainly has been a tough year one way or another but throughout it all, I have worked hard, been consistent and have been dedicated to my craft and I have now reaped the rewards..!!

But, the awards didn't stop there...!!! There was a new award for 2013, 'The Photographers bar' which I have also been awarded with..!!
Becoming a member of the Photographer’s Bar is a unique distinction awarded to those photographers who have successfully had images assessed by the Guild over the course of a year, and attained a score equating to an award for each entry made, thereby evidencing an exceptional level of professional skill and consistency – a distinction that is very difficult to achieve!! And I am very privileged to be one of only 26 members of the Guild that has achieved that in 2013...!!

I would like to say a huge thank you to all my family, friends and wonderful fans and followers on Facebook & Twitter for all your love, support and encouragement over the whole year, without it I would not have achieved so much...!!

I would also like to thank Steve, Lesley & team, All of the Judges of the Guild, because without all their hard work there would be no Guild. And their encouragement & help has been amazing. So to, goes my thanks to all the Guild members that have been great support, one of the things that you get from the Guild is a sense of community and family, which I have to say I feel a real part of..!!

And lastly, congratulations to everyone that came away with awards that night, they were very well deserved.. it really was an amazing night and its a huge huge achievement for everyone..!!
Thank you again,
MarieLianne
