Aussie based Briton photographer cuts the Mustard

44-year old Briton Shannon Conway beat entries from former winners Alex Mustard, Jane Morgan and Alan James to take first prize in the DIVE-sponsored British Society of Underwater Photographers’ (BSoUP) Open Portfolio competition..

A total of 23 portfolios were judged by the audience of underwater photographers at the BSoUP end-of-year meeting in South Kensington, London on 19 December.

JP Trenque, the newly appointed BSoUP chairman, said: ‘This year’s Open Portfolio trophy has a special meaning because it coincides with the Society’s 40th anniversary. I am extremely pleased for Shannon to have received it, as it celebrates the accomplishments of a very dedicated and accomplished photographer. I’m sure we’ll enjoy a lot more of his work in the very near future.’

Conway, who took his images in Bali, Australia and Palau with a Nikon D2X, wins a trophy and a cheque for £100, donated by DIVE. The annual Open Portfolio is open to BSoUP members and non-members. For more information, see www.bsoup.org.
