Genesis Imaging are proud to support the UK Picture Editors’ Guild annual awards as a sponsor of the Regional Photographer of the Year category. The awards celebrate the exceptionally talented photographers working behind the lens throughout the media today.
Chair of the Judges and Picture Editor of the Independent Newspaper, Sophie Batterbury, commented that again in 2015, “The overall calibre of entries was exceedingly high this year, in several categories it was very difficult to choose a winning entry.”
Over 380 photographers entered, more than 2000 photographs were considered by the judges, and fifty per cent of entries received in the last few hours of the entry period.
