Nikon-Walkley Prize Winners

Sam Ruttyn from The Sunday Telegraph was awarded the Nikon-Walkley Portrait Prize for his entry ‘Josh Carter’ . The judges commented on the “strong emotive contrast between the horrifically invasive surgery and the intimate nature of the portrait. This shows Sam has earned the trust of his subject”..

The winner of the Nikon-Walkley Regional/Community Photography prize was Braden Fastier from News local. The judges stated that “Braden showcased his understanding of what light can do and his sensitivity to his subject matter. Great all-round coverage.”

Both Braden and Sam received prizes of Nikon D600/AF-S 85mm f1.4
