Nikon UK Announces 2008 Nikon Discovery Awards Winners

Gina Brocker of the University of Wales in Newport, UK has won the Grand Prize of the 2008 Nikon Discovery Awards.

With her outstanding portfolio submission, Gina Brocker competed against 24 other students from around the UK and Ireland and won the coveted £5000 plus a D300 camera kit awarded by Nikon UK, as part of an initiative the company set up to seek out and support emerging photographic talent around the UK. The 24 students from each of the participating universities and colleges also picked up a D300 camera kit in recognition of their work.

The Nikon Discovery Awards, in association with British Journal of Photography, was set up two years ago to encourage photographic excellence by offering students and their universities or colleges the chance to win a share of £50,000 worth of prizes.

The winning photos will be posted on Nikon Europe’s Gallery mini-site.
