Guillaume Amat wins the 2010 PHPA prize

At the opening gala for our photo exhibition last nigh, the jury designated Guillaume Amat the winner of the 2010 PHPA Prize…
Guillaume seemed really pleased to have won the prize, which comes with a cheque for 3,000 euros. Even better than that: this year we have a new partnership with the prestigious Esther Woerdehoff Gallery which means that Guillaume will have his own exhibition there next year. Well done!

And a second prize was also awarded last night, with the winner chosen by the staff of the Hôtels Paris Rive Gauche. Ambroise Tezenas’ lovely photo below came out tops.
Ambroise won a giant bottle of Pannier champagne almost as tall as he is! 😉
