The Motor Sports Association (MSA) is pleased to announce that Dom Romney has been named the Renault MSA Young Motor Sport Photographer of the Year for the second time.
Established in 2002 in association with Renault UK, the award is designed to find and recognise the most promising British motor sport photographers aged 25 or under.
Romney, age 21 from Lincolnshire, used his first award win in 2009 as a springboard to becoming a successful freelance photographer. His work has since appeared in a wide variety of publications, such as Motor Sport, Fast Bikes, American Car and MSA.
Romney said: “There’s no other award in the automotive photography industry quite like Renault MSA Young Photographer of the Year. After winning for the first time in 2009 I quickly realised how beneficial it was, particularly when introducing myself to new clients. I wouldn’t be where I am now without the award, and I intend to use this second win to further my career in ways that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.”
MSA Chief Executive Colin Hilton said: “The judging panel were unanimous that previous winners must go the extra mile with their submissions in order to secure the accolade for a second time. Dom did just that with some stunning photography that not only confirmed his technical skills, but also revealed a growing ability in a variety of different subject areas.”
Romney will collect a trophy and a cheque for £1000 at the MSA’s Night of Champions ceremony at the Royal Automobile Club in London on 20 January 2012.
