Surely this should not have been called "This Is Britain". More like "Boozey Britain" ?
Your views please...
I agree totally with you on this. When I saw the winning entries, I couldn't believe it! Disappointment is an understatement!
Whilst I would agree that no one wants to see a Britain portrayed through Rose tinted spectacles, but do we really need to be reminded of the binge culture that is so prelavent throughout many parts of the UK (or aywhere else for that matter)?
These images would certainly put me off from visting Britain if I were from another country. In fact, I showed a copy of the magazine with the winning entries to some of my friends abroad. They were most unimpressed.
I agree with andreasphotography that it would have been far better to potray Britain in a more positive and upbeat manner, rather than the sleazy, boozy warts and all theme.
