I had all three of my submissions selected from work I made last year. This is an annual open show with different selectors. This years selectors were
Artist/Photographer and Filmmaker, Colin Gray, Natalie Rudd, Senior Curator of the Arts Council Collection, and Kofi Smiles, Breakfast Presenter from BBC Radio Humberside.
