AOP Assistants Award 2011 Winners Announced - This year marks the 21st anniversary of the AOP Assistants Awards. Introduced in 1990, the awards aim to showcase the talent of the next generation of professional photographers.
Success in the Assistants Awards often results in the Assistant making the leap into professional photography and winners of the AOP Assistant Awards often then achieve great results in the AOP Photographers Awards.
The AOP had an exceptional panel of judges this year and greatly enjoyed the in-depth conversations about the entries. It was a difficult task for the judging panel to select the final 80 images that form the 2011 exhibition as the standard of entries was outstanding. Here are the winners:
