I waited till the mid December deadline to submit to the British Journal of Photography International Photography Award. I was working on making better prints of my smaller selection of Folly to make a portfolio box and to submit to the Hyeres Villa Noailles so I thought it would be best to get these done then use the files from these prints to submit the project in it’s best light. I had printed 13 images but decided to submit 12 (the competition was a max of 15). I felt this sequence was enough to carry the work and didn’t lose traction at any point. This was alongside the standard small text for my project.
This competition though seemingly difficult to win feels worth entering on the off-chance of being selected. The winner receives huge amounts of press, £5000 production grant, an exhibition and a feature in BJP. It is also nice to see that Simon Bainbridge and Sarah Allen who both saw the beginnings of Folly at photomeet are on the jury.
