Win for ePHOTOzine member - Kathy Wright has won the 2009 Amateur Photographer Of The Year competition and a few other ePHOTOzine members have also made the top five!
Kathy's entry for the last round of the competition.
Kathy has entered the competition for the last four years, finishing third two years running and fourth last year and she decided that 2009 would probably be the last year of trying to win first place.
Kathy said: "My partner, Vince encouraged (nagged) me into entering at first, and I thought it would give me a bit of motivation to actually get out of my comfort zone and take photos of different things."
She added: "EPZ members have helped me enormously - I spent hours reading the forums and tutorials, but most importantly the feedback and support is brilliant."
ePHOTOzine members, Sean Slevin, Phil Hargreaves and Gary McGhee also made the top ten.
Well done guys!
