The Societies are pleased to announce the overall winners of their Monthly Image Competition.

Chris Chambers from Castleford, West Yorkshire was awarded the coveted Photographer of the Year by The Societies during the Awards Dinner at their annual Convention. Over four hundred guests were present at the Awards Dinner in London on Saturday January 23 2016.

The judges commented, “This decisive moment has been superbly captured, in this fast-paced moment. It’s a staggeringly good shot that we all wished we had captured.”

The competition is a truly international success with entrants from all four corners of the globe entering monthly.

In addition to receiving his trophy Chris also walked away with a Fujifilm X-T1 Camera with XF 56mm f/1.2 lens and a fully paid ticket to the WPPI Convention in Las Vegas with a flight and 5 nights accommodation to the value of £3,200.00.
