The seventh – and last – David Worthy Award has been won by Allan Bovill of the Derbyshire Times.
The photographer received £200 for the best portfolio and Miriam Balfry of the Redditch Standard wins £50 for submitting the best cycling picture.
Judging was by Phil O’Brien of EMPICS, the Nottingham-based photo agency which specialises in international sports pictures, assisted by Russ Gunn of Fuji.
The award was set up in memory of the sports photographer David Worthy, who was killed on an assignment. It has been open to students on the National Council for the Training of Journalists’ press photography and photo-journalism courses at Sheffield College.
The trustees of the award are setting up a permanent exhibition of some of David’s work at the National Cycling Centre at Velodrome in Manchester for the world championships taking place there.
They will not be continuing with the award to NCTJ students.
From 2001, Fuji Professional will be sponsoring the Fuji/NCTJ Student Photographer of the Year Award.
The prize for the best portfolio from students on the NCTJ courses at Sheffield will be £200 cash with two further prizes of £100 in Fuji vouchers.
