This is a career highlight for me. My portrait of Jonathan Morgan, a volunteer
lifesaver with the RNLI, has been chosen as a winner of the Portrait of Britain award!
There were over 13,000 entries to this photography competition, and the 100 winning
images will be displayed in a public photography exhibition at the many JCDeceaux
screens around the country.
I am very grateful to judges Simon Bainbridge at the British Journal of Photography,
Parveen Narowalia at British Vogue, and Martin Usborne at Hoxton Mini Press who are
publishing the accompanying book.
I recently interviewed Jon and he told me his most proud moment was when together
with the crew he helped save the lives of two professional yachtsman whose vessel
had failed in gale-force winds. I asked Jonathan about his motivation and he said
"I try to help people, and if I got into trouble at sea, I would want to know there
would be someone there for me.."
Many thanks to Jon and the volunteer crew at RNLI Dungeness.
The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea.
THIS EVENT HAS NOW BEEN POSTPONED
A unique event discussing law and protest by leading protest practitioners and hosted by Doughty Street Chambers London. This event aims to leave you inspired by protest, by providing an overview of the state of protest law, and mapping the changing nature of policing protest from Greenham Common to Extinction Rebellion. The event is combined with my COMMON PEOPLE photography exhibition which is currently on show in the Doughty Street Chambers private gallery and will form a visual backdrop to the evening. If you would like to attend the talk on Thursday 26th March, please message me here.
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
1st place Tom Keen
2nd place - Sean Knott
3rd place - Simon Leach

I am truly delighted to receive a prestigious Association of Photographers' GOLD award! The AOP Awards are generally acknowledged as the photography BAFTAs and gold is their highest accolade. There is no given with a gold; some years there are none awarded, it is simply at the discretion of the judges. This year there were eight golds and two of them went to women photographers, this ratio reflecting the current statistics of women photographers working within our industry. I received my award in the Fashion & Beauty category, and my fellow female awardee is the talented Tina Hillier for her Documentary series. Click to see all of this year's finalists. My thanks to all of the team who worked on this story with me: Art Director Jo Bell, Stylist Maria Francolini, Hair & makeup Lizzie Court, Photo Assistant Julie Stewart and of course Liddie Holt & Vincent(pictured) and Forever Young magazine for publishing. Although the nature of our industry has changed in recent years as traditional magazines disappear from the newsstands, it is our love of photography that continues to fire our passion to create what we always hope will be beautiful, memorable imagery. Pictured with me above are my friend and talented art director Jo Bell, and also my wonderful and supportive agents Anita Grossman & Rosie Harrison of A&R CREATIVE who have been representing me a record-breaking twenty five years! Massive thanks to Clara Mercer from the British Fashion Council who judged my category and chose my winning picture! And to Seamus, Rachel, Nick and all team AOP for putting on a cracking show at the East Wintergarden, Canary Wharf. See you all next year! Wendy x p.s. The exhibition showing all 200+ Awards finalists is still on show at One Canada Square until the end of May and, as overheard at the Awards party, "I've just seen the exhibition and was surprised at how much better the pictures looked in print than on my screen." Now there's an idea... For more photography by Wendy Carrig please visit her website

This is a new global award founded by the British Journal of Photography and Magnum Photos. My photograph will be included in the accompanying book and winners will be announced at the launch event on May 23rd. The picture unfolded between takes on a portrait assignment for Perfect Bound magazine. The Long Goodbye shows a genuine moment of emotion as Buddhist Monk & charity founder Emma Slade says farewell to her friend Fitch, the graceful Great Dane who sadly passed away a few weeks after the photograph was taken. Previously a London investment banker Emma turned to Buddhism after being kidnapped and held hostage at gunpoint whilst on a business trip to Jakarta.
