Nescot Photography Lecturer, Yon Marsh LBIPP, wins highly coveted Bronze Award in prestigious International competition. The RAF Museum in Cosford, Shropshire played host to the British Institute of Professional Photography’s National Photographic Awards in September 2009.
The cream of British photographic talent attended, alongside colleagues from Singapore, Japan, Ireland and the Netherlands and, appropriately, hopes were flying high to win awards in many categories of professional photography. Yon clinched his award with a stunning Fine Art picture.
BIPP President, Graham Rutherford FBIPP, enthused “The standards we set in our Awards are extremely high. This picture by Yon is an outstanding example of the best in British photography. All photographers joining our organisation go through a challenging qualifying procedure and people buying photography should be reassured to see the BIPP symbol alongside a photographer’s name.”
Yon's work has now been automatically sent to the President of the FEP to enter into the European Professional Photographer of the Year Awards in Antwerp in December 2009.
