This years Recognition from Photography Institutions
Its not often photographers hear the phrase that their submissions into an international competition have been described as “world class”. However when the awards were given out at the 37th Annual Master Photographers Awards 2020, that’s exactly what the submissions were described as!
One International Finalist and Seven International Merits in the Master Photography Awards - my impressive haul from the 2020 Master Photography Awards.
Ray Lowe, Chairman of the MPA comments: “The standard of photography we have seen this year is without a doubt world class. It is always exciting to see new faces coming through and its rewarding to see such great talent entering our awards. With entrants both UK and worldwide, our winners really are at the pinnacle of creative excellence. The Association has sat as the premier photographic association since 1952 and this year marked the 37th Awards ceremony. It is an absolute honor to showcase imagery of such high standard and we are extremely
proud to represent some of the greatest professional image makers globally, it was a huge success for any member who gained a merit award and above from the thousands entered.”
