Kuala Lumpur Photo Award

I had one of my images selected for the 2020 Kuala Lupur Photo Award in the single image category (Fig: 1).

I’ve not had an image place at a major photography award before, so I am really pleased that I had this one accepted. Even though the image was taken for Positions and Practice, it is particularly good to have an image accepted into an award during this module to experience the process of entering and placing in the exhibition.

I discussed a number of the awards that I was intending, or had entered earlier in the module (Fig: 2) and the KLPA was one of these. Initially, my intention was to save the image of Rory for the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize after Photographer Paul Welham-Clarke commented on the instagram post I made of this image (Fig: 3). It quickly became apparent that the Taylor Wessing wold not be running this year, so I made the decision to include the image with my entry into the KLPA.

My image is online with the other finalists, and will be exhibited at ILHAM Gallery in September.
