OPS member Philip Joyce has been successful in the Marwell Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. Philip entered the Marwell Zoo Residents category and won with 'Congo buffalo'; Philip’s two other entries 'Giraffes' and 'Giraffe feeding' were both commended. All winning entries will be displayed in an outdoor exhibition in the grounds of the zoo. Philip’s prize is a free annual membership.

Magda Wolna has recently published her first ever photobook, of the streets of Oxford in the build up to the 2016 EU Referendum. It can be seen here:
Magda added that if anyone is interested in purchasing a copy, they can contact her for a discounted price and book signing! J. Alternatively, you can buy directly from Blurb at the price listed.
Steve says “Recently I've been doing a lot of street photography exclusively using a mobile phone. I have put together a new website that includes the images from a new photobook I've published with Kozu Books (based in Bath). Using social media to market it I am pleased to say the 1st edition has now sold out. I'll bring a copy to a future OPS meeting and would be happy to talk to others about doing something like this. It's been a challenging but rewarding process.” You can see Steve’s work at www.stevegrayphotography.com
