Second Look UPDATE!

A big thank you to all who voted for me in the recent Second Look photography competition i recently posted about...

I am really pleased to say that i have just recieved an email telling me that i have WON!

Below is the message i recieved and although im currently sunning myself with the fam in Corfu, ill be back next week in time for the awards event next Weds. Do come down and join us for a drink if you are free...

A winner has been chosen from the Bristol A Second Look 09 photo competition!

After receiving over 1,300 votes online and as paper ballots, Second Look is delighted to announce that 'Arches' by Luke Palmer has been chosen as this year's Second Look at Bristol.

The votes were very close & competition was fierce. Several pictures took the lead for a while, and only 1 hour from completing the count this competition was too close to call. The general response to the 16 finalists from the public has been incredibly positive with a lot of people commenting that it was impossible to choose one picture to vote for.

There will be an award ceremony on Wednesday October 21st, at Photographique, 31 Baldwin St, BS1, from 6.30pm-9pm. There will be drinks, music & entertainment, all the pictures entered in this year's competition will be displayed & Luke & the 15 finalists will be presented with their awards. All are welcome.

Second Look would like to thank the 75 people who entered this competition for their incredibly creative responses to the brief; Mark Simmons, Steve Wright, Justin Quinnell, Philip Searle, Alex Wolfe Warman & Rachel Profit for the impossible job of selecting our finalists; Photographique & Make Better Photos for supporting this event & supplying the prizes; and the thousands of you who voted for your favourite picture. Once again the quality of the entries & the enthusiasm of the public has completely taken us by surprise.

Thank you Bristol.
Keep snapping.
