"...Another Fantastic Convention..."

This year’s London Convention has been described by many as a positive, uplifting and educational experience, with a mix of photographers and artists from over 50 countries, all gathered under one roof to enjoy the event. It had lively conversations and social experiences, linked together by the common International language of photography.

All in all a terrific event – thank you to the 14,000 attendees who came along.
