News photographer wins AOP Open

August 7, 2009

Photojournalist Richard Wainwright won Best in Show at the AOP Open awards, which were announced last night in central London.

Richard’s documentary shot of two boys ‘surviving street life in Mongolia’ beat 1,500 other entries to claim the title.

The Public Choice Award went to freelance photographer Lara Jade whose image entitled ‘Bernadette’ received nearly one in seven votes in an online poll.

An image by Amateur Photographer technical writer Barney Britton was among the shortlisted entries.

The best images are on show in a free exhibition at the Association of Photographers (AOP) gallery until 28 August.
