Since June 2012 I have been entering National and International Photograph exhibitions, as a way of challenging myself and trying to judge my progress.

The exhibitions fall into two categories:

FIAP Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique

BPE British Photographic Exhibitions ("The BPE exists to encourage photographers to enter exhibitions and to recognize successful entrants via the issue of the Crown Awards photographic distinctions. Exhibition members share ideas, promote each other's exhibitions and generally work together to promote competitive photography.")

As of 13th March 2014 I have achieved the following:


241 acceptances in 75 salons in 23 countries, with 52 different photographs accepted.
