Suffolk based Photographer, Paul Coghlin ABIPP has triumphed in the highly coveted British Institute of Professional Photography’s National Photographic Awards and has been awarded BIPP Photographer of the Year 2010.
Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire played host to the British Institute of Professional Photography’s National Photographic Awards Celebration on 27 November.
In addition to receiving his Associateship qualification and the Peter Grugeon Award for his ABIPP 20-image panel, Paul journeyed through two stages of judging to receive a handful of awards including three highly acclaimed Gold awards in the categories of Science and Nature, Abstract / Illustrative and Landscape. With only eight Gold awards presented in the entire competition, this truly is an exceptional achievement.
Paul also received a Silver award and a Merit in the Science and Nature category as well as three Merits in the Abstract / Illustrative category and two Merits in the Landscape category.
Paul’s Gold award winning image from the Science and Nature category, Pink Tulip Study IV, then awarded him BIPP Photographer of the Year 2010.
The cream of British photographic talent attended, alongside professional photographers and colleagues from around the world and, appropriately, hopes were flying high to win awards in many categories of professional photography.
Newly appointed BIPP President, Andy Gotts FBIPP, enthused “The standards we set in the BIPP Awards are extremely high. These pictures by Paul are outstanding examples of the best in International 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.”
