The prize competition attracted hundreds of submissions from amateur photographers across the region, who were invited to capture the spirit and heart of the North East of England through its people and places, and we are delighted to announce the winners of the 2022 Northern Photography Prize.
Two stunning images by two talented amateur photographers from Northumberland have picked up the landscape and portrait awards at this year’s Northern Photography Prize. The two winners will each collect a £1,000 cash prize.
Reflecting upon this year’s competition, LJ Ross says: ‘I’ve always been inspired by the unique ability of talented photographers to capture the essence of a person or a place, and the people and places of the North East of England are particularly special to me, since they represent my homeland. I wanted to found a prize that celebrates the ‘spirit’ and ‘heart’ of our shared region and to continue to support and encourage the arts. We’ve again had an overwhelming response, which made it no easy task for the judges to choose between so many powerful entries.’
