30 Nov Alan Bennett Image Makes Top 10
An image captured by #TCCFreelancer, Alan Bennett has made the top ten in an international photography competition.
Learning company Pearson asked photographers from around the world to submit images which captured the essence and emotion of education and learning.
Alan’s photograph, which features a retirement home resident encouraging his great granddaughter to walk down a corridor, was selected by a panel of judges including the renowned British photographer, Rankin.
“I just saw the gentleman and the little girl walking down the corridor and I was inspired by their responses to one another to take a photograph,” Alan said. “When I contacted Pearson sometime later about commercial work they informed me about the competition and I knew just the photo that I would send them.”
“I am so proud to have been selected by the judges, particularly by someone with the reputation of Rankin and to find my work appreciated in this way, along with photographers from around the world.”
Rebecca Sinclair, the Pearson Vice-President Global Brand Architect, said: “The judges selected images that we believed best captured the magic of learning in its many forms. The top 10 images were selected because they pulled on the heart strings and left a lasting impression as well as being vibrant, colourful and optimistic.”
Cambridgeshire based Alan has over three decades of photographic experience and is a member of the National Photographic society.
No stranger to awards, he has previously won The Australian Nikon / Panorama Photographer of the Year, Gold and Silver in the AIPP Australian Professional Photography Awards and was 2010 and 2011 winner of the Norwich heritage Economic and Regeneration Trust photography competition.
