Third place for Matt in the contemporary section with this photo.

In the contemporary picture section Matt came third. He said: “This shot of Riccardo and Lorenzo, taken during a recent promo shoot for Coconut Hair Salon, is one of my very favourites and makes me laugh every time I look at it. Apparently, it made the judges laugh too which is why it was awarded a very healthy third place!”

In the press and PR category Matt also came third.

Matt came a respectable third in the press and PR category. He said: “This is another shot from the Unsung Lilly promo shoot, this time of the entire band. To me, this just captures them perfectly.”
