Winners announced for the 155th International Print Exhibition
The Royal Photographic Society and Allen & Overy LLP have announced the winners of the 155th International Print Exhibition.
The exhibition showcases a variety of photography from a range of emerging and amateur photographers from around the world, with the judges viewing over 3,000 prints from nearly 800 photographers worldwide.
Entrants competed for a share of the £6,500 total prize fund and Gold, Silver and Bronze medals as well as the special Allen & Overy award, which this year has the theme of 'change'.
The Gold Award of £2000 went to Gaby Wood for her photo entitled Dead deer. Gaby said, “This photo was taken last summer in Princeton, New Jersey, the day before Hurricane Irene hit the East Coast. I went for a run early one morning and found this beautiful young stag, very recently dead. When I went back to get my camera I also hauled my children out of their game of dressing up – which is how my eldest ended up here: a little scared, a little devastated, wearing a tutu and not too close.” View Gaby’s photo here.
The Gold Under 25 award of an Olympus PEN camera went to 22-year-old Matthew Town for his photo, Fencer. Matthew said, “The portrait Fencer was part of a series I shot at a fencing club in Bournemouth, Dorset. I had been looking into how class affects sport, and after doing some research I found that fencing was generally perceived as an elitist sport. Whether it is an elitist sport or not does not matter to me, what I am interested in is how people portray themselves within various sports.” View his photo here.
The two Silver Awards of £1000 went to Amanda-Jane Bollini for her photo Poppy & Honey at Pett Level, Winchelsea Beach and 22-year-old Daniel Lilley’s photo, Snorkeler. See Amanda-Jane’s photo here, and Daniel’s here.
The three Bronze Awards of £500 went to Chrissie Westgate FRPS’ photo, Watching the band, Gordon Bramham ARPS’ photo, Rain raven and Yao Wei’s photo, The bathing festival.
Finally, the A&O Award of £1000 on the theme of ‘change’ went to Bill Cooper for his photo, Urban renewal.
The opening exhibition will run until 9 September 2012 at the Allen & Overy offices in Bishops Square, London. Opening hours are from Monday - Friday 9.30am - 5.30pm; Weekends 10am - 5pm. After London the exhibition will tour the UK.
