Exhibition 2018

My local Library, Blythe Bridge, has an exhibition space that can be booked a month at a time. I had booked it for March and was intending to put the Exhibition up on Friday evening. This was instead of the Saturday morning due to the Spring Fair they have on Saturday. With all of the snow we have it might be more of a pre-spring fair.

How many of those ‘award winning photographers’ go on to state what the awards are and with whom ?. I wonder how the number of ‘award winning photographers’ compare to the number of people who actually have photography specific insurance such as for Public Liability and Professional Indemnity ?. If someone is stating that they are an ‘award winning photographer’ […]
