BJP Award – Success!
I found out last friday from Simon Bainbridge (Editor of the British Journal of Photography) and Stephanie Braun (Curator of the Photographers Gallery) that I was the winner of the BJP/Nikon Project Assistance Award. I blogged abut this previously when I got shortlisted back in January. At that point the 8 finalists were given 2 months to prepare a detailed project proposal – mine was to complete my series on the collapse of the Spanish construction industry.
It’s a real honour to win this award; I’ve been hungry to spend a decent amount of time on a body of work, but haven’t been able to self fund any extended trips to shoot personal work; This will give me the opportunity to take an extended break from the UK and really get my teeth into a project.
In the next week or so I will make a more detailed blog post, explaining how I prepared my project proposal.
There is an article in this weeks edition of the British Journal of Photography that can also be found online here.
