Nikon UK is delighted to announce that leading sports photographers, Dickie Pelham and Stephan Rousseau, picked up awards for the two Nikon sponsored photography categories at the British Press Awards earlier this month.
Whilst the awards ceremony was a momentous occasion for both Pelham and Rousseau, it was equally significant for Nikon in that both award-winning portfolios were shot using Nikon’s professional equipment. Having been involved with the British Press Awards for some years, Jeremy Gilbert, Group Marketing Manager at Nikon UK says: “Nikon is delighted to be associated with such outstanding photography and is especially pleased to see that Nikon is once again the choice of press photographers thanks to the outstanding performance of our professional range.”
Judges described Dickie Pelham of The Sun, winner of the ‘Sports Photographer of the Year’ award for the fourth year in a row, as having an impressive ability to capture unique moments of sporting drama. Pelham’s image of world champion boxer, Joe Calzaghe was described by judges as a “cheeky, witty” image that “captured a moment in a sport which can often be the hardest to get”.
