so many times it happens too fast you trade YOUR PASSION for glory don't lose your grip on THE DREAMS of the past you must fight just to keep them alive

Our second year of Farmers Image of the Week will come to an end tomorrow with the 52nd winner. The idea is simple.. I wanted to reward our attendees for taking great pictures and making sure that they are seen. A bit of healthy competition is good in any industry and working in isolation leaves us with not many obvious achievements. So I follow all of their Facebook pages and pick out what I consider to be the best image from that week. Then at the end I get together with some of our mentors and judge them all. You can see all the images on our blog and decide your own winners. Next Thursday night we will have an Awards night in Brighton and announce the winners. Our very generous industry friends have put forward some incredible prizes for the winners and those very lovely chaps at Folio will produce the winners' images as Fine Art Prints in a stunning portfolio. So what is up for grabs this year?
