The Sony-sponsored BLPA competition has become a staple event on the calendar of dedicated photographers living in Britain. Very few contests offer the range of specific categories to accurately depict the stories of people from all walks of British life, making BLPA a unique opportunity. 

The overall winner has been revealed to be Amy Bateman, who surpassed many entries with her image showing lambing season in Cumbria. Amy is from a rural background, so is an expert when it comes to country living and the vital processes such as that explored in her winning entry.
