Our 'All-Round Photographer of the Year' title (i.e. the person with the highest combined score from any two categories) was won by Charlotte Bellamy and the runner-up was Belinda James.
Guild Director Steve Thirsk said "The winners have done incredibly well! I don't know of a more demanding competition process anywhere. To come out on top after being assessed by a highly acclaimed judging panel over a 12 month period is quite remarkable."
The competition was sponsored by InFocus insurance and One Vision Imaging.
The Guild is 25 years old this year and is the fastest growing photographic association in the UK with a reputation for being the friendliest, and the most forward thinking!
