It's a shame that the Lottery gives a hell of a lot less than it would have done if Branson had got that gig
I've no objection to the POTY having a fee, without a sponsor, where else could the money come from?... and giving that all revenue for the running of POTY's will be made via a fee this and potentially subsequent years too the factoring in of a percentage for charity would, to me, just be really cool.
I do agree that taking into consideration global economic climates is very important - is the fee £10 everywhere in the world?... there is a pretty dire climate in the UK too, for the average individual but it's nothing compared to other countries...
I think a mindful amendment to this years POTY, to use some revenues to donate, on behalf of entrants and the magazine would be such a wonderful gesture, place the mag in such great light and set such a standard for other businesses etc not just nationally but globally too.
Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling.
If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.
