Five entries each were short-listed in the People and Landscape categories, six in the Livestock category and three in the Crops category of the 2010 photography contest.

Judges were Stephen Howe, chairman of the Guild’s Charitable Trust and former editor of Farmers Weekly; honorary member Stephen Skinner, Farmers Club chief executive and secretary; and the 2009 overall prize winner, freelance photographer Wayne Hutchinson.

“The short-listed pictures, which were assessed for technical quality as well as the imagery they contained, covered a range of subject matters,” noted the judges. “This was evident from the display of prints mounted at the National annual meeting and Midlands conference, which attracted a lot of attention.”

Catherine Laurenson, staff photographer on The Scottish Farmer, did particularly well, taking the winning and runner-up slots in the Livestock and Landscape categories, as well as the runner-up position in the People category.

Fellow Guild member Marcello Garbagnoli, staff photographer on Farmers Guardian took the Crops category award and the overall runner-up prize with his image of ‘greening potatoes’.

But Joe Watson, agriculture editor of the Press & Journal, took the People category and the Overall win for his study of a blacksmith at work.
