The NME Photography Awards Winners with Nikon are at the Getty Images Gallery from 7 Nov - 1 Dec 2012. Stuart Fawcett (JackAllTog) went along on behalf of ePz.

Nikon is the headline sponsor of the Getty images gallery in London. Nikon see this as an excellent way of showcasing the best in photography and this is also reflected in the Gallery’s aim to surprise, engage and highlight the very best imagery from the early days of 1850 to the current day. The Gallery space is nice and large with plenty of room for a bar and a DJ and as well as all the images.

Their current exhibition is the third year of collaborating with the NME music magazine and the private view attracted 7000 entrants. The Gallery is exhibiting the finalists and the shortlisted entries for this year’s competition, the overall winning image pictured above of indie band Spector, on stage at the HMV Institute in Birmingham. And this is one very happy Andy Hughes below with some super Nikon prizes he won for this entry into the Live category.
