Canon A2 printer worth £1000 (Pro-1000 or similar)
Fotospeed inkjet paper worth £500
A day of bespoke one-to-one tutoring. Photographer to be confirmed.
We work with some amazing companies and this year we are pleased to announce that Canon have offered one of their A2 printers as part of the FPOTY prize fund. We can not thank them enough for their generosity and support.
We have been running three Canon wide format printers for the last four years and have always been blown away with not only the quality of the prints but the quality of the machines themselves.
In 2016 we became a Canon registered partner for their wide format printers. If you have any questions regarding Canon printers please contact one of the Fotospeed team.
What an amazing and unique prize to win.
Winning #fsprintmonday photographer of the year has been an incredible experience on so many levels. Apart from being delighted that the Horses image was so incredibly well received, to be judged the best amongst a hot-bed of photography talent was very humbling. The confidence gained from winning has spurred me on to turn professional, a move which I don’t regret and am loving my new career. I can’t thank Fotospeed enough for the fabulous printer and tutoring with the eminent Doug Chinnery which has no doubt, propelled me forward in my new career. A fabulous prize and an honour to be Fotospeed Photographer of the Year. Amy Bateman 2018

11th March Results
|@MiradorDesigns has produced another cracker here! Sarah has really captured the personality of this "Punk Rocker" Pelican. Its eyes are pin sharp and it has been beautifully framed showing off this magnificent creature in all his glory.|
|@SophieCarrPhoto has captured this mountain scene wonderfully. The image shows a real contrast of conditions with the warm light coming from the right and the harsh cold reality in the foreground of snow and ice. Congratulations!|
|Soft, subtle and serene. This image made us all feel relaxed and up in the clouds. We intitially missed @AndyLuddington image off the #fsprintmonday album this week but thank goodness we didn't as it had instant appeal to us, we think this would look beautiful printed on one of our Fine Art Matte papers.|
|This image by @MrsB really caught our "eye" see what we did there? The hat naturally frames her face which is beautifully lit, her confident and sassy, yet still innocent look had us captivated. Such a beautiful portrait.|
Another tough judging week, we had 19 images in the top 4 at one point! It is so hard narrowing it down to just four let alone the winner, however we do love a great portrait and the composition, great use of light and shade made this beautifully elegant portrait a stand out image for us.
Congratulations Amy Bateman
