Video of the judging process here.
This is the photo that I submitted for the first round of Practical Photography Magazines 2010 "Photographer of the Year" competition - the 'Landscape' category.....well, amazing as it still seems to me, it actually won!
The prize was a Nikon D300s and a 16-85vr lens with £500 of Jessops vouchers. The D300s has arrived and I've already exchanged it for a new Nikon D700. When the voucher arrives I'm going to put it toward a new FX wide angle Nikon 16-35vr lens to go with the new camera.
It's been an exciting couple of weeks since I heard that I'd won!
There's 6 rounds of the competition altogether (although I'm not allowed to enter any more of them). In the summer the competition judges will chose an overall winner from amongst the individual winners of the 6 different categories with the prize being tickets for two people on a 2 week cruise to N Africa + £2,000 in camera vouchers.
