International Recognition for Local Photographer

Local Photographer Name achieves international acclaim!

Debbie Longmore, a photographer based in Town has reached the Final of the fiercely contested Guild of Photographers Image of the Year Competition.

The Guild is a highly respected UK based association for photographers, which has members from overseas as well. Each year it runs an online monthly photographic competition, judged by internationally respected judges, with awards given to the best entries.

During 2023, the competition attracted c12,000 entries from the most talented of photographers. It has recently been announced that from all the entries across the year, the Guild’s Judges have selected no more than 10 images in various genres to go forward to the annual Image of the Year Final. Those selected really are the best of the best, and an image(s) by Name is one of those selected as a Finalist!

Guild Director Lesley Thirsk said “One of the Guild’s aims is to drive standards and creativity amongst photographers. Our competition certainly does that, for the standard of the entries we see each month is quite staggering. To have an image recognised by the Guild in the monthly competition is difficult enough, so to have an image selected as being one of the best in a category for the end of year Final is without doubt an incredible achievement, and shows just how talented photographer, Debbie is.”

Debbie said “I love photography and put a lot of effort into developing my skills. One way I do that is to enter the Guild of Photographers competition as it drives forward photography standards month after month, so it really helps me push myself. The images I see getting awards each month are inspirational, so knowing just how high those standards are, to have
one of my images shortlisted as one of just 10 in the final of this category from the many images submitted across the whole year is really exciting! I couldn’t believe it when I found out.”
