The traditional manor house venue that resembled the home of a 19th-century adventurer lay surrounded by the rolling hills of the Midlands countryside. It set the scene for an event that brought cheer, laughter and even tears. 

The four seminars during the day covered a diverse range of topics within the photography sector; they included processes used to create high-end fine art, insights on operating a world-leading e-commerce studio, the key to successful in-person sales and the impacts of evolving technology in society. Each talk brought educational benefits, creative outlooks and inspired thought into different fields of photography. Thanks to all the speakers for their time and for sharing their expert knowledge.

We finished the day’s events with the AGM, which summarised the BIPP’s activity over the year just gone and looked foward to what lay ahead for 2022. 

As the night approached, we began the awards evening to announce the overall winners of this year’s National Print Competition, along with the Presidential Award, the Sean Conboy & Jonathan Beer Award and various special acknowledgements of staff and members. We then finished the night with more drinks and dancing.

We want to thank everyone who attended and Andrew Younger for photographing the entire event. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. For us, it was an absolute success.
