    Well done Bill Spears - B&W Magazine (UK)

    As Bill won't blow his own Trumpet hears a piece from the B&W Magazine Press Release:

    Press Release
    25th August 2010
    Paul Coghlin is the winner of the prestigious Black & White Photographer of the Year.
    The competition, run by Black & White Photography magazine, attracted entries from around the world – including America, China, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Czech Republic, Norway, Ireland and the UK.
    Black & White Photography is the only magazine which caters specifically for photographers working in black & white. The competition accepted entries from digital and film photographers but entries had to be supplied as prints.
    Categories included best portrait, landscape, still life, single image, travel, reportage, under-25, digital printer, silver printer and the overall prize of Black & White Photographer of the Year.
    The judges included legendary printer Robin Bell (who has worked with everyone from Eve Arnold to Don McCullin), plus acclaimed photographers Trevor Crone and Tim Clinch, Helen Esmonde (from Hoopers Gallery in London), Elizabeth Roberts (editor of Black & White Photography) and Keith Wilson (editorial director of GMC Publications).
    Elizabeth Roberts said: ‘The competition proves black & white photography is thriving, with a talented new generation of photographers coming through, shooting on digital or film.
    ‘We were delighted with the huge number of photographers who entered and the high standard of entries. The judges had some very tough decisions to make.’
    The winning entries will be featured in a special exhibition at a top London gallery – Hoopers Gallery – from 3 to 10 September. The pictures will also be featured in a special supplement which comes free with Black & White Photography issue 116, which comes out on 9 September.

    Thanks for blowing my trumpet Ian ( that'll create a few comments !)

    Yes I was totally over the moon to get these results, and especially in these particular categories.

    Just got back from London, had a really great couple of days..... Thurs night at the private view at Hoopers Gallery where I met a few other forum members.... and the following day visiting other exhibitions around the city.

    Thanks again
    Bill

    I can't imagine the A-Z being of much help in C.Wharf. This said it is worth getting lost there at the mo as there is a fascinating window bay which allows to see both underwater and overground building work of the new station; I hope that you saw it. There's lots of documentation of the project too.
