All the winners from the 18th Julia Margaret Cameron awards are featured in this month’s Fotonostrum magazine.

I was absolutely delighted to have my work chosen and be announced as the winner in three categories. Huge thanks again to the judges for making their selections, and also to the talented team involved in the fashion image, and to Kate Morrissey and her son for their generosity of time whilst I created the documentary image. For more pictures and full credits for these stories click fashion, documentary, landscape.

Best wishes

I am delighted to discover that I have also won both the Documentary and Landscape categories in this years Julia Margaret Cameron awards! Again, my complete and sincere thanks to the JMC judging panel for selecting my work, which I hope will help to highlight some of the issues illustrated below :

WINNER DOCUMENTARY SINGLE :

This is Kate Morrissey who received a custodial sentence as a result of her heroin addiction. She is now an NHS manager, and leads campaigns to bring about reform of the criminal justice system. See her moving and inspiring TED talk “Do we truly believe in rehabilitation?”

WINNER LANDSCAPE SERIES :

More Wallander than Broadchurch, this small urban hamlet with incongruous planting and strange street furniture appears no more than a ribbon of mid-century houses between vast wastelands and the sea.‘ This is a series from my personal project Urban Palms.

HONORABLE MENTION DOCUMENTARY SERIES :

These images were taken last year on the road from Cardiff to Greenham Common. I documented a reenactment of the nine day 110 mile protest march that started the Greenham Women’s Peace Camp – the largest female-led protest since suffrage. To find out more about this initiative please take a look at the work by activist group Greenham Women Everywhere, or check out my previous blog post on this event here.

Massive congratulations to all the other winners and finalists in this year’s JMC awards.

WENDY CARRIG | HONORABLE MENTION | ADVERTISING & FASHION | SERIES

With the recent demise of the ‘traditional’ glossy magazine, I am grateful for independent publications like RakesProgress, and photography awards such as the JMC, as important spaces for photographers and other creatives to showcase personal projects.

Many thanks again for taking the time to look and read.

I am extremely honored to have this project selected by the judges – Jennie Ricketts trustee at Autograph Gallery and the Martin Parr Foundation, and Isabelle Von Ribbentrop the Executive Director of the Prix Pictet.

The Greenham Women’s Peace Camp was the largest female-led protest since suffrage, and led to the international ban of Cruise missiles. But this extraordinary event has largely been written out of history. Last year the activist group Greenham Women Everywhere recreated the protest march from Cardiff to Newbury [that started the Peace Camp] to once again highlight the achievements of these remarkable women.

It was an honor to walk alongside and document this new protest march from Cardiff to Greenham Common. Below is a series of 15 selected works, from this extensive project, that have been shortlisted for the 37th Association of Photographers(AOP)Awards.

Walking for 110 miles over nine days, the pain of polluted roads and thunderous traffic was accompanied by camaraderie and song.

Original Greenham Women shared inspiring, and sometimes terrifying stories, of their time spent at the peace camp, with a new generation of impassioned activists.

Their aim, to highlight the urgent crises of the climate emergency, nuclear weapons escalation, daily violence against women, extreme hunger, and social inequality, could not be more timely.

Having my work chosen for this category, in a genre I am not generally known for, really means a lot to me. I hope that my photography will help highlight the important work initiated by Greenham Women Everywhere.

You can’t kill the spirit!

Very happy to have two works selected as finalists by legendary fashion photographer Koto Bolofo.

A video showing all the finalists for the 37th Association of Photographers Awards has just been released and can be seen here.

I am very pleased that two of my images have been selected for FASHION. This category was judged by one of my photography heroes Koto Bolofo whose work I have hugely admired for many years.

I am also honored to have work selected in the PROJECT category – a series of Black & White photographs from a portfolio I created last year documenting a one hundred mile protest march by the activist group Greenham Women Everywhere. PROJECT was judged by photography expert Jennie Ricketts together with Isabelle Von Ribbentrop from Prix Pictet.

All photography will be exhibited at the AOP Awards party on April 20th, where the winners will be announced.

Maybe see you there?

Tomorrow I will be presenting a workshop titled ON ENTERING PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS. The workshop was originally created by @f22aop women photographers, responding to the fact that women weren’t entering photography awards in the same way or numbers as their male counterparts. The workshop will cover how entering photography awards can improve confidence in your photographic practice, help gain visibility for your work, and how this can progress your career.

The workshop is open to all members of the Association of Photographers (AOP) and registration is via eventbrite. Hope to see you there!

The JMC awards have taken their name from pioneering photographer Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879) who is recognised as one of the foremost photographers of the 19th Century.

I’m delighted to have my work selected for the 16th JMC awards, especially in genres I am not usually known for. The work is all from my personal projects : Don’t Look Now, ALL at SEA and On This Line That Divides.

Many thanks to judges Elisabeth Biondi, Barbara Davidson and the good people at the Worldwide Photography Gala Awards. An exhibition showing all of the finalists will be held at the Fotonostrum Gallery Barcelona in November 2021.

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
