November 14: Post photo chief wins prestigious award

Royal Photographic Society accolade for Ian Day FRPS

THE Yorkshire Post is rightly proud of its campaigning and investigative reportage, and the countless awards that many of the newspaper’s journalists have won for their agenda-setting work. Yet few provide greater satisfaction than the illustrious Fellowship that the prestigious Royal Photographic Society have bestowed upon photographer, picture editor, assistant editor and friend to all Ian Day FRPS.

This august accolade has particular personal poignancy for Mr Day because it comes two months after the death of his much missed father John, and to whom he credits with inspiring a lifelong love of photography.

But Mr Day is the first to acknowledge that this accolade would not be possible without the iconic imagery captured by the Post’s unrivalled photographic team. Their work remains indicative of the adage that a picture is worth a thousand words.
