NEWS FEATURE FROM THE ASSOCIATION OF PHOTOGRAPHERS We talk to Wendy Carrig who won a Gold in the 2019 Awards. Wendy, a long term member, has been instrumental in reinstating the f22 group - Women Photographers at the AOP. Read more to find out about her winning image and the overall impact her continued involvement with the Awards has had on her career.
Tell us more about your Selected image and the story behind it? This image forms part of a series of fashion portraits of photographer, dog hotelier and ex-model Liddie Holt, taken at her home in Somerset. This was a personal collaborative project that was later accepted for publication. Can you tell us something surprising about the image? There were a number of dogs on set that day including dachshunds Ernie and Vincent; and a gentlemen of a Giant Irish Wolfhound called big Ron. It was also my assistant’s birthday, but she didn’t tell us! So a big shout out to superwoman Julie Stewart! What impact has being a gold winner in last year’s awards had on your career? Winning GOLD was euphoric and surreal, and I even received two new work commissions the day after the Awards ceremony. I’ve since been invited to speak at a number of photography colleges; and I am currently enjoying judging SUN#31 the Shot Up North Photography Awards. Winning increases profile and confidence, and gives conformation that the work we create is enjoyed and appreciated. It has spurred me on to explore different areas of photography and always challenge the perceived limits of my own creativity. What does the AOP do for you? The first year I set up on my own as a photographer I joined AFAEP and was very pleased to have an image accepted into the Awards. That year the Awards ceremony was held at London’s Cafe Royal and my work and name was put in front of an amazing audience of high profile clients and art directors. This type of exposure was a massive springboard into the industry for me (possibly even more so in the days before social media) and helped to immediately establish my career. This year I was pleased to be involved in the relaunch of f22, the AOP women’s photography group. We aim to support AOP women photographers at all stages of their career and challenge the continuing gender inequality within our industry. Have you got any advice for photographers considering entering the next awards? Be original. Be brave. If you are not sure whether to enter your work show it to your colleagues or share it on social media to help gauge response, but make your own decisions. Take responsibility for and be proud of the work you have created. And women photographers, if we all enter at least one more image than we did last year we could help make a difference to the gender imbalance at the Awards, the AOP and the wider photographic industry. Good luck to all!

I was extremely honoured to be invited to judge this year's Shot Up North Awards, and also pleased to discover that I am the first woman photographer to be sole curator. For me photography is about passion, emotion, telling a story, conveying a message, and encouraging reaction. In selecting the winning images I chose them not just for their technical excellence, which is a given, but because of my positive knee-jerk reaction on first viewing them, and the continued enjoyment and empathy they evoke upon successive viewings. They will stand the test of time. My sincere congratulations to Tom Keen, Sean Knott and Simon Leach on Their winning entries, and to everyone who entered the #SUN31 photography awards. It was my great pleasure to judge such inspiring and emotive photography. You can see the final 50 images here
