Winners announced for Saffery Champness 150th Anniversary photographic competition - Photographers capture essence of accountancy firm in 150th anniversary competition
Saffery Champness commissioned this photographic competition in celebration of their 150th Anniversary in 2005. The firm was founded in 1855 by Joseph John Saffery.
Qualified photographers with at least one year’s experience were invited to send in five high quality photographs on any theme that reflect their skills and ability in a versatile and original way. From these submissions, four finalists were selected: Peter Iain Campbell, Nicholas Harries, Gunilla Treen and David Yeo.
These chosen individuals were rewarded with a Research Residency fee of £2,500, to produce twenty images for a national exhibition, that reflect and capture dimensions of Saffery Champness’s 150 years of ‘proven quality’, identified as: insight, clarity, innovation, consistency, commitment, teamwork and integrity.
This week, a judging panel, comprising Richard Knight, international director of Christies; Susie Medley of Fotonet South; Chris Boot, publisher and popular comedienne Caroline Quentin, selected a series of winning photographs from each finalist which will be displayed in exhibitions throughout the firm’s anniversary year. The panel chose Gunilla Treen as the overall winner, and she was awarded an additional £1000 prize.
