Photographers' Everyday work is rewarded

The photographic talents of regional press snappers from across the country have been recognised at a national awards ceremony and exhibition.

More than £30,000 of prizes was handed out to the winners and runners-up at Northcliffe Newspapers’ The Everyday photography competition, including top-of-the-range Canon digital cameras.

The Essex Chronicle’s Andy Palmer also scooped two Club Class return tickets to San Francisco after he was chosen as the overall winner of the competition and named United Airlines Press Photographer of the Year.

His photograph of Clara and her cat (below) was also awarded first prize in the ‘Daily Routines’ category.

Other winners were Paul Nicholls from The Citizen in Gloucester, who won the top prize in the ‘Community’ category, and the Derby Evening Telegraph’s Jonathan Hindmarch who scooped the award in the ‘Seminal Moments’ category.

More than 1,000 entries were received for the competition, and the results were announced by Northcliffe’s managing director, Kevin Beatty.

A selection of entries, which included the work of all the finalists, was exhibited at the Vinopolis gallery on London’s Southbank on March 24 and 25.
