Di Canio shot in photo contest


PDC in Barclays Photo Awards shortlist.

A photo of Paolo Di Canio celebrating Stephane Sessegnon’s goal in a 1-0 victory over Everton in his first game at the Stadium of Light has made the shortlist.

Split into two categories, The Barclays Photographer of the Season will be judged on five images submitted with the winner receiving a Barclays Award and £10,000 to spend on photographic equipment. The Barclays Shot of the Season will be selected from the best single image submitted by each photographer. The winner will also receive a Barclays Award together with £5,000 to spend on photographic equipment.

The judging panel includes Alan Sparrow, UK Picture Editors’ Guild Chairman; Owen Humphreys, last year’s Barclays Photographer of the Season; Martin Tyler, Sky Sports commentator; and Andy Dunn, Chairman of the Football Writers’ Association.
