2019 Image of the Year Finalist

Local Photographer Annie Griggs of Annie Griggs Photography, achieves international acclaim!

Annie, a multiple award winning photographer based in St Albans, Hertfordshire who also runs a successful photography studio in Redbourn, Hertfordshire has reached the final of the fiercely contested Guild of Photographers Image of the Year Competition.

The Guild, a highly respected UK based association for photographers with members internationally, runs a monthly photographic competition for its members, judged by internationally renowned judges with awards given to the best entries.

During 2019, this competition has attracted over 13,500 entries from the most talented photographers globally.

It has recently been announced that from all the entries across the year, the Guild’s Judges have selected JUST 10 images in various genres to go forward to the annual Image of the Year Final. Those selected really are the best of the best, and an image by Annie Griggs is one of those selected as a Finalist in the much coveted and competitive Baby & Toddler category.

Annie said “To have one of my images shortlisted for the overall final from the many 1000’s submitted across the year is really exciting. I love photography and invest heavily to develop my skills so my clients get the very best when they have a photoshoot with me. I am so grateful to the Guild of Photographers for this amazing recognition.”

Guild Director Lesley Thirsk said “One of the Guild’s aims is to drive standards and creativity amongst photographers. Our competition certainly does that, for the standard of the entries we see each month is quite staggering. To have an image recognised by the Guild in the monthly competition is difficult enough, so to have an image selected as being one of the best in a category for the end of year final is without doubt an incredible achievement, and shows just how talented photographer, Annie is.”

In early December, highly regarded Judges gathered together from across the country and overseas to choose the overall winner.

The final outcome will be announced at a lavish Awards night in a magnificent Jacobean mansion in Cheshire on the 1st February 2020.
