Mark Ashworth wins First for photography award with Velvet Magazine

Velvet Magazine awards 2011
I am thrilled - for the third year running I have won the Velvet Magazine "First for Photography" award. This year Velvet magazine really pulled out all the stops for these very prestigious awards and held a fantastic event at Parsonage Barns in Wooddittion near Newmarket. The venue looked fantastic, beautifully decorated and the perfect size for this occasion. There was champagne and canapes on arrival and some fantastic entertainment. It was great to mingle with lots of local businesses, all very excited to be nominated for their categories. Velvet has a great reputation for supporting local businesses and tonight certainly showed their ongoing commitment to the business community.

There was a raffle with some great prizes, all the money being donated to the East Anglian Air Ambulance Charity. The awards were given to 18 local businesses from in and around Cambridge and Newmarket, which were voted for by Velvet Magazine readers. To top all this on leaving everyone was presented a goody bag with lots of treats from some of the nominated companies. It was a great evening and I am very proud of this award....
