The Sproxton Award for Photography:
The Sproxton Award for Photography is presented each year to the best student in the MA Photography Final Show at the London College of Communication (LCC), as judged by a panel of photography professionals.
The winners receive £1000 to help kickstart their careers in photography. The prize was set up in memory of Andrew Sproxton who, in 1972, together with Val Williams, created the Impressions Gallery of Photography in York, one of the first specialist photography galleries in the UK and Europe.
Photofusion is an independent photography resource centre in Brixton. Continuing our support of young and emerging photographers, we are delighted to be presenting the Photofusion Award to a photographer from the MA Photography course at LCC.
The Award will be presented to a photographer whom we feel has a fresh approach to the medium, and whose work provokes and challenges the viewer. The prize will be £200 of vouchers to spend on any of the facilities at Photofusion. These include: digital bureau, film processing, darkroom, studios, professional development and training.
