LPA Futures 2017-2019 / The Launch Party!
We've just received the event photographs back from our brilliant Futures 2017/19 launch party last week! Held at our base at the beautiful Camden Park Studios, we showcased the work of the five winners together for the first time, Imogen Forte, Will Hartley, Steven Joyce, Katrina Lawson Johnston and River Thompson. This year had the biggest turn out ever with our guests enjoying fabulous (and very strong) rum cocktails supplied by The Duppy Share, whilst also meeting our amazing new Futures roster and getting the chance to mingle.
We would like to say a special thank you to our fantastic judges - Tanja Adams, Helen Parker, Sophie Chapman-Andrews, Chris Coulson, Jaki Jo Hannan, Michael Heffernan, Bel January, and Kieron Molloy. We'd also like to thanks our very generous sponsors who have provided a package of useful prizes including a bespoke portfolio case, printing, lighting and studio hire, insurance and legal advice. Thank you again - Direct Photographic, Delta Design, Manage My Website, Metro Imaging, BMA, Swan Turton, Williamson Carson and Chubb Insurance. And last but not least, we'd like to thank super events photographer Tracy Howl from Paul Clarke Events Photography for doing such a good job.
It's 6:30pm and people are starting to arrive
