PDN Faces Contest

Kindly Cast Your Vote!

I’ve decided to enter five portraits into the PDN Faces contest. As much as I thoroughly dislike any contests with a public vote, alas, this has exactly that. Contests should be judged by a jury of experience, not by one’s social media standing.

I’d like to share with you the five entries, and to even out the playing field, I’d appreciate your quick vote if you like any of the pictures. As far as I’m aware, you can vote for more than one image (done on the PDN Faces website). If you really like the image, feel free to share it via the share button on the PDN Faces website. Thanks 🙂

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.

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!
