You may have seen the first part of this post a couple of days ago, if you didn’t, click here . In November the Portico Awards took place at Manchester Town Hall, in the stunning Great Hall. I was commissioned to capture some more portraits and capture the event as it unfolded. It was a fabulous evening with so much talent in one room. I met the guys from the previous session once again and met some more authors on the night. Some established, and some were up and coming.
The Portico gives a sum of £10,000 to the authors of the best Fiction & Non Fiction books. Jean Sprackland won the best non-fiction award for her title ‘Strands’ and Sarah Hall the best Fiction for ‘The Beautiful Indifference’.
The Portico Award has been previously won by the likes of Anthony Burgess – Author of ‘A Clockwork Orange‘.
Here are some of the shots from the evening.
And yesterday I was told a couple of the shots were seen in Cheshire Life Magazine...I of course ran out and brought a copy today.
