A selection of 2009 winners

"...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 12,500 attendees who came along.

We have uploaded a selection of images from the event and you can browse them at: http://swpp.co.uk/convention/showpix10/
