  • By Jonathan Banks

I was a winner at the 13th Annual “International Color Awards” Nomination & Winners Photoshow, streamed on Saturday 14th March 2020.

I received an honourable mention in the “Abstract” category for my architectural photo of the ceiling in the ICON Outlet at the O2, an honourable mention in the “Silhouette” category for my photo of a Red Cross volunteer behind a flag, and four nomination titles for the categories of “Abstract”, “Children of the World”, “People” and “Still Life”.

I am the longest serving and volunteering photographer for the British Red Cross. I have photographed everything from disaster relief to Royal events. They are, and always will be, the organisation that I most enjoy working with.

The work that I have witnessed has been amazing and the people that I have worked are incredible. The British Red Cross is always on standby to help with UK emergencies and the coronavirus, is no exception. 

The live online gala is now the worlds most watched photo show with over 15,000 photographers around the globe participating.

The BPA run an open, responsible competition aimed at celebrating photographic talent from all British and British-based photographers. They work with a range of UK charities to operate a non-profit competition cashflow and they keep this completely ring-fenced from the rest of the business finance. This is integral to their model. Together they aim to use the massive power of photography to do real good in the world.

Both my pictures are in support of “Surfers Against Sewage” which is a marine conservation charity working with communities to protect oceans, beaches and marine life.

The awards accept a broad range of work from different disciplines and from all over the world. It is independently judged by some of the most respected names in British photography.
