ACCLAIMED Limerick photographer Cormac Byrne has been awarded bronze in the fashion category at the European Professional Photographers’ Association in Portugal.

The overall winner was Antonio Barrella from Italy.

“The competition is a huge inspiration to all of us in the European photographic community,” said its chairman.
