Wex reveals its Photographer of the Year winners

Posted on Dec 10, 2019

Devon-based landscape photographer, Andi Campbell, claimed first place in the year-long social media competition, while  Dan Portch scooped second place and Dave Fieldhouse came third.

Andi has won £1500 worth of Wex Photo Video vouchers, with Dan and Dave winning £500 and £250 in Wex vouchers respectively.

Around 15,000 images from photographers all across the UK were submitted to the Wex Photographer of the Year 2020 competition over the course of 12 months, using the Twitter hashtag #WexMondays.

To participate in the competition, entrants are invited to share their best shot from the previous seven days on a subject matter of their choice, tagging Wex on Twitter and using the hashtag #WexMondays. Every week, one winner, two runners-up and seven shortlisted shots are selected by the Wex Photo Video judging panel based on technique and creativity, and allocated points on the #WexMondays leader board. The top three photographers with the most points accrued throughout the year are presented with the first, second and third place prizes in the Wex Photographer of the Year 2020 competition.

Winner Andi Campbell commented: “I entered Wex Mondays after getting the bug and winning in one of the weeks last year. I was introduced to it through the amazing photography community on Twitter, and from knowing others who have been successful in the past. The hardest part of the competition was finding something new and original to enter each week, regardless of the weather conditions or where I was able to photograph. Winning means the world to me. The competition has really pushed me to think more about my own work and has helped me develop. I can only thank Wex Photo Video for providing a great initiative that inspires me and so many other fantastic photographers.”
