We are pleased to announce Mr Ian Rolfe as our photography judge in 2022! Whilst he will be overseas at the time of the show, the transition to a digital competition has allowed us to take advantage of his photography expertise. Examples of Ian's work can be found at his website www.ianrolfelightscapes.com
Ian started writing a column for the Photo-master magazine about eighteen years ago. Since then, he has written and published over 160 articles for various magazines and published 3 of his own photographic books. Thousands of Ian’s images are sold each year to appear in books, magazines, newspapers, travel brochures and on many commercial websites.
