Classical Portraiture Image of the Year 2022
Emma Finch, a photographer based in Manchester has reached the Final of the fiercely contested Guild of Photographers Image of the Year Competition.
The Guild is a highly respected UK based association for photographers, which has members from overseas as well. Each year it runs an online monthly photographic competition, judged by internationally respected judges, with awards given to the best entries. During 2022, the competition attracted c12,000 entries from the most talented of photographers. It has recently been announced that from all the entries across the year, the Guild’s Judges have selected JUST 10 images in various genres to go forward to the annual Image of the Year Final. Those selected really are the best of the best, and an image by Emma is one of those selected as a Finalist!
Guild Director Lesley Thirsk said “One of the Guild’s aims is to drive standards and creativity amongst photographers. Our competition certainly does that, for the standard of the entries we see each month is quite staggering. To have an image recognised by the Guild in the monthly competition is difficult enough, so to have an image selected as being one of the best in a category for the end of year Final is without doubt an incredible achievement, and shows just how talented photographer, Emma Finch is.”
This image of Ivory Flame Model was taken earlier in the year for designer Sindy Bloom.
The winner will be announced at an Awards Evening in February 2023.
