A very prestigious award

AHP-01-33Some very fantastic news - I have once again achieved national acclaim!
I have just reached the criteria for membership of the 'Photographers Bar' for the second time, by The Guild of Professional Photographers.
THE GUILD: Membership of the 'Photographers Bar' is a unique distinction awarded to those photographers who have successfully had images assessed by the Guild of Photographers over the course of a year and have attained a score that evidences an exceptional level of professional skill and consistency throughout the full year.

The competition attracts up to 1000 images for judging by an an expert Panel of Judges each month. Points are given to entries and these are then totalled at the end of the year. Those who reach the required threshold are then awarded membership of the 'Photographers Bar'.

That membership of the 'Photographers Bar' is a distinction that is very difficult to achieve - in fact less than 100 photographers have achieved it in the 3 years since its inception, during which time  over 30,000 images will have been entered for assessment by photographers across the UK and from overseas. Alan Has reached this level twice which is very rare!
