In the words of The Four Seasons ‘Oh What a Night!’.. we had a heck of a lot of fun last night at the Photography Farmers Awards ceremony in Brighton. There could be a few sore heads this morning but thanks so much to all the Farmers and their friends that made it. Some of you came from really far away and I’m super grateful that you made the effort. Huge thanks to Stewart Randall from Folio who joined us for the night and produced the beautiful folders that the farmers received with their winning images in them. The process of judging these was incredibly difficult but in the end, the winners were all chosen as they could have won in more than one category. These images are a testament to how hard these guys work and how by pushing out of our comfort zones, we just might create an image that is truly epic. So who won what?

A huge thanks to all these fantastic companies for donating prizes, the winners were all super chuffed. I was also totally floored when the Farmers presented me with my own prize and some very lovely messages.. there were a lot of happy tears last night and I’m super excited that we have already started with a whole new year of Image of the Week.
