A photographer from Lancaster is feeling ‘incredibly proud’ after making it to the finals for a top international award.

Joshua Brandwood was shortlisted in the Best Amateur category of The Event Photography Awards for a picture he took last year of the Princess of Wales. The picture was taken during the princess’s visit to Lancaster's Standfast & Barracks fabric printing factory in Caton Road.

This week, Joshua had the honour of attending the awards ceremony at the Royal Institute of British Architects in London’s Portland Place.

"It was a tremendous honour and privilege to be shortlisted for such a prestigious award,” said Joshua, who is also a Lancaster Guardian contributor.

"While I didn't win, it's still a significant achievement considering it was my first time entering a photography competition, and competing against professional photographers who do this full time."
