I was delighted to receive news that one of my portfolios had been nominated and subsequently won the 2017 Best Licentiate Award by The British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP)
The BIPP Qualifications provide an internationally recognised benchmark in professional photography. To successfully achieve a qualification, candidates submit a portfolio of images and accompanying supporting evidence to be assessed against exacting standards.
Throughout the year, BIPP Assessors nominate portfolios that they feel are exceptional. These portfolios are then re-assessed for consideration for the annual Qualification Awards and presented every year at the Professional Photography Awards. This year the awards lunch was held at the Ivy Restaurant in London and I was so honored for my work to be recognised by winning the Best Licentiate Award for 2017. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the awards lunch as I was on a shoot for the Pac-12 in Las Vegas. Nevertheless, it looked like a great event and I'm looking forward to attending future BIPP events in the future.
I also now get to put the letters LBIPP next to my name if I choose...very fancy!
