Daily photographers go head-to-head for award

A trio of photographers from a daily newspaper will battle it out with a snapper from a sister title to be named the best regional photographer at an awards ceremony.

The Press in York has had three photographers shortlisted in the regional photographer category at the UK Picture Editors’ Guild Awards, which will be held on 4 November.

Anthony Chappel-Ross, Frank Dwyer and Mike Tipping from the title have been shortlisted, along with Stephen Garnett from fellow Newsquest title the Craven Herald.

The awards aim to find the most talented press photographers in Britain and entries are judged by working picture editors from national, regional and international publications, as well as photo agencies.

The awards ceremony will take place in London and will be hosted by BBC journalist and presenter Kate Silverton.

Following the ceremony, the winning entries will be displayed at the Museum of London from 6 November until March next year with a dedicated exhibition.

An entry by Anthony Chappel-Ross shows CO Vaudin of 2 Signal Regiment embracing his son Nicholas, 12, on his return.

An entry by Frank Dwyer shows Holgate Windmill at sunset.

    As a former reader of the Craven Herald it is great to see Stephen Garnett shortlisted. His photographs, especially the centre spreads which I don’t know if they still do, were always one of the highlights.
