Independent Reviews


”Getting a distinction from a nationally recognised body such as the Royal Photographic Society…will help build trust and credibility too, particularly when you’re starting off.“

Jeff Meyer, Website Editor, Digital Camera World
Anne McNeill

”I believe that we have selected images that embrace creativity and present the best in a wide range of photographic genres; ranging from documentary, portraiture, landscape through to fine art.“

Anne McNeill, Director of Impressions Gallery in Bradford and Selector for the 157 International Print Exhibition
