British Life Photography Awards - Street Life winner

02nd March 2015
So, I was surfing about on the internet and stumbled across an online photography contest called the British Life Photography Awards. I had heard of them before, but had never entered before as I was either busy doing something else or I missed the entry deadline, etc.

Anyway, last year Spring/Summer I saw there was a street photography category and thought, I'll have a go and sign up, enter a few pics then thought nothing more of it. I actually forgot I had entered.

So, by the time I received a random phone call out of the blue one cold and dark November 2014 evening suggesting I had actually won first place in the Street Life category, I thought it maybe someone's prank until the lady from the BLPAwards at the other end officially described my photo and that she would contact me in writing to officially provide full details of the prize and awards evening next year.

To cut a long story short, I was on strict instruction not to announce my news until it was officially announced by the British Life Photography Awards, which was very difficult for me! But here we are, March 2nd 2015 and I have just seen a article in the Metro newspaper with my street photo included.

I will be going to the Private Evening tonight in fact to collect my prize and meet the other winners.

Check out the photo and the other British Life Photography Award winners on the official BLPA website
