Congratulations to John Powell BPE5*
Five crowns in four years… is this a record?
Sincere congratulations to DAPA Member John Powell for achieving his BPE5* in just four years!
“I started entering BPE exhibitions in November 2007,” John tells me, “and gained my first BPE Crown Award for 25 acceptances in April 2008.” By August of the same year John had swiftly gained his second crown (for 50 acceptances) and been bitten by the exhibition/competition bug. “July 2009, almost a year later I gained my third crown for 100 acceptances, and my fourth crown followed in October 2010.” By BPE4* photographers will have achieved 200 acceptances at national exhibition photography level. Just one year later and John had his 5th crown with 303 acceptances, of those 54 achieved awards: ” I calculate that I’ve entered 65 exhibitions, with 61 different works to achieve my BPE5*,” says John.
