As I hold my baby daughter at four in the morning, feeling the softness of her cheek against my own…
What a talented bunch of photographers submitted to this quarter’s award! While it’s wonderful to receive so many high-quality submissions, it does make the task of selecting a winner, a runner-up, and finalists all the more difficult. The competition was so fierce that many of those who weren’t even selected in the final five could have easily been chosen as the winner.
After much discussion and deliberation, we are pleased to announce the winner, runner-up, and three finalists for Award VII: Vocation. All five photographs will be published in the August edition of Womankind, which is distributed to more than 15,000 stores in 14 countries.
Abigail Lees for Monsieur Oulie and his truffle pig
Louise Firli (née Wilson), Supporting his family
Krissy Russell-Hedstrom, The eccentric jeweller
Lisa Bow, The truth will set you free
Claire Rowson, Feet can also tell a story
Congratulations to Abigail for your winning photograph, and to Louise, Krissy, Lisa, and Claire for making the final five – there was strong competition from huge number of entries and each of your photographs caught the judges’ attention.
Thank you to everyone who submitted, we hope to see another entry from you for next quarter’s award!
