The winner has been disqualified, and Simon Butterworth is the new winner!!!
Kind of makes a mockery of the book that is already out !!!
hope he didn't spend any of the cash !!!

I assume then that the book indicates who the, now disqualified, winner was ?
I wonder why the organisers have only just discovered that the T & C's of entry were broken ?
Did somebody complain ?
Oh yes Jeff ... loads of discussions about it on the web and a few complaints from some well respected photographers to the Take a View panel seem to have got the decision overturned.
Reading a tad on this one and ohhh my has a hornets nest been stirred up... Reminds me why I dont enter this one, that and another reason I wont mention. Opens another question of how the judges missed it...
Forgot to say...congrats to the new winner, must have been a nice surprise !!

A £10,000 surprise
Be interesting to see if he gets the money and out of interest did the prev winner receive it or was still waiting on it.
And yes I think its important to know, this isn't a free comp, you pay to enter and entitled to know.
Judging large competitions is such a challenge these days, especially when the prize is so big and there's a cost to enter!
Pete I seen this image, liked it but 1st thought was --- hmm a lot of works went into getting that one looking right. The one he won "over all" with is no where near as manipulated as the other one he had disqualified by the looks of it. I honestly feel sad for this guy, he must be gutted regardless of right or wrong of how far he went with PS.
If you ever want to know privately Pete my other reason, then say and I will PM you about it.

Past winners have received their prize at the opening day of the Exhibition, which I don't think has happened yet.
Must admit, when I first saw the (original) winner, I raised an eyebrow at the obvious level of manipulation, surprised that it was deemed acceptable - but honestly I think they would have been better off with just keeping it and improving screening procedures for next year.
You know one of the things that makes me worry, Mr Waite is one of the judges and he has images of this location on this very spot in the National Trust for sale. Wonder how it got past him lol
Last week's Amateur Photographer is still claiming that David Byrne's Lindisfarne shot was the overall winner.
Digital manipulation or not, I still think it is a far superior photograph to Butterworth's tenements.
But, hey, no reason why everyone should like the same stuff.
Had a look at some of Simons work, very good stuff and well erm the Tenement shot is no where nears as good as the other stuff he has on his website. So I must confess as an urban shot, it don't rock my boat much...
