“It just gets better and better each year – from Austria to Australia, Kuala Lumpur to Kent, the standard of entries is exceptional,” says founder and Director, Caroline Kenyon.
“It’s so exciting to see the amount of recognition our winners receive in the media across the world. And it’s incredibly rewarding to hear about our finalists’ amazing success stories, photography commissions, road trips, invitations to host workshops and master classes in far-flung corners of the globe. That means a huge amount to my team and me.”
