At the end of last year, Photography Blog launched a search to find the best budding action snapper in the inaugural Autosport International Amateur Photographer Competition.
Following an enthusiastic response, five finalists were selected to attend Autosport International, the world’s greatest motorsport show, at the Birmingham NEC on Saturday 14 January 2012 for the winning announcement.
The panel, which included representatives from Photography Blog and LAT Photographic, the largest motoring and motorsport collection in the world, unanimously voted Paul Thomas from Danescourt as the winning entrant. His early morning image from the FIA World Rally Championship Race of Great Britain, taken with a Nikon D90, perfectly captured the magic of motorsport.
A delighted Paul will now have the opportunity to photograph the world-famous Goodwood Festival of Speed in June, where he will also receive one-to-one tuition from a professional LAT photographer.
Thank you to everyone who entered and congratulations to the winner and finalists.
