Photographer Paul Nicholls is celebrating after winning a top prize in the Off to Work Event Photography Awards.
Freelance photographer Paul, based in Hardwicke, bagged the prestigious Best Portfolio Award at a lavish ceremony at 4 Hamilton Place, London last week.
“I am honoured to win the Portfolio Award. The competition attracts entries from photographers from all over the world and highlights the importance of professional photography to promote brands and events,” said Paul.
Paul’s portfolio included pictures of canoeists at the Severn Bore, members of the Great Britain Olympic BMX team training at Rush Skatepark, and a smiling face in the sky during the 2020 Bristol Balloon Fiesta.
Competition director, Graham Hill, said: “We owe huge debts of gratitude to our sponsors and event partners for making the competition and awards event such a success. To our array of industry leading judges as well, who had over 300 photos to review. The competition has been a great success and will run again in 2023, with entries opening in November as the awards event will return to its traditional schedule and culminate in May.”
