The Advertiser and Express’ photographic credentials have been proven once again, with all three staff photographers nominated for a national industry award.

The trio all had entries selected for consideration in the News Media Association’s Royal Rota photography competition.

The contest judges the best pictures taken of the royal family while they take part in hundreds of public engagements.

Chief photographer Matthew Phillips had a snap shortlisted of the Queen meeting youngsters at Alexandra Gardens, in Windsor, during her 90th birthday celebrations in April.

Senior photographer Nick Parford's shot of the monarch in full ceremonial dress at the annual Order of the Garter Service at Windsor Castle’s St George’s Chapel was also chosen. And senior snapper Ian Longthorne bagged a double nomination, for a photo of the Queen in Windsor on her 90th birthday, in April, and another from the Magna Carta celebrations in Runnymede.

Results will be decided by a public vote. Visit to find out more and to vote.
