Commercial opportunities

Some of the categories offer specific opportunities for the category winner, such as Pink Lady® Apple a Day, while many other Finalists have found that work opportunities have come to them as a result of the prestige of having an image or film chosen for the Winners’ Exhibition at the Mall Galleries.

“Just a quick note to say how grateful I am to your and the team for the great effort you have put into promoting all the finalists in the competition. I really have appreciated it. Being a finalist made an enormous difference to the work I am now doing.” Joan Ransley.
