I’d like to thank the judges for putting together the shortlisted images and also congratulate the other shortlisted photographers for some truly spectacular images.
For those interested in the equipment used, both images were shot using a Panasonic Lumix G9. The running child was shot using a Leica DG 50-200mm f2.8-4.0 lens and the portrait was shot using a Leica DG 25mm Summilux. Both images were shot in raw and processed in Adobe Lightroom, with the final black and white treatment being completed using Alienskin Exposure X3.
The photograph was commended in the Urban View section and is the second time the competition has kindly awarded my work. The image will be printed in the forthcoming book and will be part of the digital display at the exhibition. Many congratulations to the winning photographers and judges.

The Religion Of Basketball. Outdoor basketball. Clapham Common, London. April 06, 2017. Photo: Edmond Terakopian
The photograph was made whilst I was exploring Clapham Common, on my way to an exhibition opening nearby. Regular readers will know of my passion for street photography and documenting daily life. It always pays to explore and have a camera handy whilst doing so.
The image was shot on an Olympus OM-D E-M1 camera and a 25mm lens. The image was processed in Adobe’s Lightroom and the BW conversion finished in Alienskin Exposure X2.
Many congratulations to all the IPA 2017 winners and all whose work received an Honourable Mention. My thanks also to the jury who found my photograph interesting!
