Image Awards

Image Awards

I attended the second So.co Image of Music Awards this evening at Amazing Grace in London Bridge. The very venue, in fact, I had suggested last summer to organiser Adam Perry! This event highlights the quality of our home-based photographers’ work over the last twelve months and brings together so many involved in capturing and promoting the UK music industry.

Votes had been cast online to decide the winner of the prestigious Image of Music ‘People Choice’ Award (sponsored by Canon). Fearghal McGlinchey came out top for his unique shot of Greta Van Fleet’s Josh Kiszka performing at the OVO Arena Wembley. Fearghal McGlinchey also won ‘Music Photographer of the Year’ (sponsored by Affinity 2), while New York-based photographer Grace Prachthauser was crowned the first ever ‘Young Music Photographer of the Year.’

Announced in the build-up, Jill Furmanovsky was worthy winner of this year’s ‘So.co Legend.’ Jill has photographed many legendary rock artists, and her work has been featured in numerous album covers and music magazines.

‘Venue of the Year’ was presented to the excellent Paper Dress Vintage based in Hackney, London,  while the Nova Twins won the public vote for ‘Must See Artist of the Year’ and ‘Innovation of the Year’ was awarded to the Canon EOS R50.

Vince Bannon, So.co CEO & Co-founder, said: “We are thrilled again to highlight and honour the great work done by music photographers throughout the year. As you can see from the quality of the entries, the standard just keeps getting better.”

It was a pleasure to catch up with Adam, Paul Scaife of Record of the Day, and Awards judge Belinda Enthoven during proceedings. Plus enjoy live performances by Millie Manders, Joe Bradley and Tom A Smith.
