The Royal Photographic Society and Allen and Overy LLP have announced the winners of the 155th International Print Exhibition.

Dead Deer, Gaby Wood
Dead Deer by Gaby Wood, the winning image.
 
This exhibition showcases a wide variety of established, emerging and amateur photography taken by some of the world's most talented photographers.

The selectors viewed over 3,000 prints from nearly 800 photographers worldwide and 123 were selected for the exhibition. Entrants competed for a share of the £6,500 total prize fund and Gold, Silver, Bronze medals as well as the special Allen & Overy award, which this year has the theme of Change.

The Gold award was won by Gaby Wood, for her haunting image 'Dead Deer'. Gold for the under 25s went to Matthew Town for his photo 'fencer'. Two silver awards were given, to Amanda-Jane Bollini and Daniel Lilley. Two bronzes were also awarded, and these went to Gordon Bramham and Yao Wei. The Allen and Overy award on the theme of change went to Bill Cooper.

The exhibition will run from the 19th of July to 9th September 2012 at the Allen and Overy offices in Bishop's Square, London, after which it will tour the UK.

Just don't see the great merit of this, for me, very ordinary image

I can appreciate the impact of the dead deer but other than that it's not outstanding in my opinion.

3000 prints from 800 photographers worldwide and this one is considered the best? Sad

No wonder the "royal" lost the credibility it had years ago.This is so poor it would get a low mark in most if not all exhibitions let alone a club beginners comp !!!!.Sad

How many more times are we to see "Girl with Animal" albeit alive or dead, winning such competitions...

Have these selectors and judges no imagination to see beyond the same old cliché shot.

How can this be described as a 'haunting image', it looks like a snapshot taken on a mobile phone. I now have doubts about visiting the exhibition, if this is supposedly the best then the other images must be appalling.

Usual RPS crap. Surely this can't be the best of 3,000 prints, I resigned many years ago when the silver medal winner was four prints on one mount of a nipple an eyebrow and a bellybutton ( of a seventy year old man ) and I can't remember what the other print was.

What a dismal response.
I saw the exhibition the other day and it was quite brilliant.

I agree with zebraboy, take the time to trawl through for an overall view, subjective as it is, there are imho some quite brilliantly conceived and made images here.
