“We continue to be astounded by the quality of the entrants and the substantial interest our awards have created in the photography profession.

“The standard of entrants in English international football category was incredible with the number of entrants growing year-on-year. Ian was a very worthy winner with an excellent portfolio which captured the real emotion of English football.
