It’s been another exciting week at PhotoBox. On Monday we announced Craig Hughes as the winner of our Dishy Dads Competition. We received a total of 14,739 votes! He was delighted to win and plans to give some of his £1000 Red Letter Day prize to a children’s hospice charity auction, so he’s a nice guy as well as Dishy Dad!
I then had the fun task yesterday afternoon of joining the judging panel of our DK Photo Britain competition. Thank goodness that with almost 8000 entries the best ones had been short-listed for us, otherwise we’d still be there battling it out to find the winning photo for the next cover of DK Eyewitness Great Britain.
The standard and variety of photo entries was staggering, and the amateur and under-16 categories certainly gave the pros a run for their money. Having decided on a winner for each of the 12 categories, it proved a much tougher job to agree on just one overall winner. Thankfully a designer mocked up a front cover of the guidebook to show us how a couple of our favourite photos would look, and we all agreed that one image fitted the space perfectly. Right now our winner is still top secret – sorry but come on, it’s only polite to let them know first! I promise I’ll update this post with the winner’s details just as soon as I’m allowed to announce it.
As for the rest of the week, we’re left to compete with either the mass of mud that’s likely at glorious Glastonbury, or watch Andy Murray in the toughest tournament of his career so far. Go Andy go!
Have a great weekend everyone
