Merit for Michael

Michael Barlow, from the NECS communications and engagement team has recently won a merit award from the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP).

The winning image was from work Michael did for a case study for NHS Newcastle and Gateshead CCG about patients using exercise to treat their diabetes.

Michael, who is qualified to Associate level in the BIPP, was awarded a Merit in the Photojournalism category at the BIPP 2017 North East Regional Image Awards with the image titled “Ron – beating diabetes”.

Michael said, “I was really pleased to win the award. The project was about real people from our local area trying to improve their health and this was reflected in the image. These are always uplifting stories to publicise and I was really glad to be able to help”

Well done Michael!
