Maree's Blog / 6th Annual Black and White Spider Awards

Recently at the 6th Annual Black and White Spider Awards I was a finalist with two images in the categories of Advertising and People. This prestigious awards show received thousands of entries from around the world and was watched by 40,000 online viewers who logged on live from 154 countries to see the climax of the industry's most important event for black and white photography.

The awards international Jury included captains of the industry from Sotheby's, Magnum Photos, and Tate.

This was my first international competition and I'm currently working on my submissions for next year’s awards.

These are the two images entered.

‘Redundant’ - illustrating job loss at the beginning of the recession.

The second image was called ‘Generations’ and reflects five generations of women.
