Winner of Bronze Photography Awards
Its been an exciting week here at Amanda Powell Photography. I’m absolutely delighted to have received not one, but two BRONZE photography awards from the Guild of Photographers in the genre of children’s portraiture.
The Guild’s very popular and exciting ‘Image of the Month’ competition involves members submitting images into set genres. Entries are then assessed by a number of highly experienced Judges.
Entries are then graded in accordance with international judging criteria.
The higher scoring images are given Bronze, Silver, Gold Awards or maybe even the highly sought after Platinum Bar.
Guild of Photographers Award Categories
Every image entered is then awarded a category. It’s based on the following grading:
- A Platinum Bar: Images of exceptional or outstanding quality (only awarded to the ultimate of images)
- A Gold Bar: Images of particular distinction (very rare)
- A Silver Bar: Images that are very well crafted (difficult to achieve)
- A Bronze Bar: Images of a strong standard at a national competition level (something to be proud of)
- Classified: Images of a standard worthy of acknowledgement relevant to the genre, but are not deemed award winning at national competition level. It is possible that with one or two tweaks these images could have scored even higher.
- Not scored: Images that do not reach our ‘Classified’ level score will not be given a grade. Often images in this position do evidence competition potential, but require some things to be different for the image to score higher in a national competition. In some cases it can be just one thing that prevents a higher score such as dust spots which are clearly visible or the accidental inclusion of a business watermark.
It’s a great start to the year and I’m very proud to feature amongst such a talented group of photographers.
To see all the winning images submitted this month, pop over and enjoy them here.
