Giant congratulations to Sandie Powner from Leicestershirewho has been granted Craftsman Status with the Guild of Photographers.

To achieve this Sandie had the difficult task of selecting 20 images taken by her in the past 3 years to create a submission. She already held Qualified status with the Guild, which she had to do, in order to apply. The images also had to be presented as mounted prints as well as in a digital format.

She then submitted her submission to the Guild, where a Panel of very experienced Judges assessed the panel of work awarding her with Craftsman status - a superb achievement!! You can see the images she submitted below.

You can find out more about the Guild at its website (, and more about Sandie at her website
