As part of this year’s International Women’s Day celebrations it was my huge honour to be part of the curation panel for WOMAN an exhibition of extraordinary photography by f22 Women Photographers at the AOP.

The exhibition was created by the f22 working group, and is featured throughout March on the AOPawards.com site and the @f22aop and @AssocPhoto Instagram.

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.
