“We work with all levels of photographer, from those just starting out on their careers to those at the very height of the profession, and are keen to encourage new talent.” Joyce Pinto
Plastic Sandwich has been putting together portfolios for photographers and art directors since the early 1970s. It was founded and is still run by Joyce Pinto and Rob Jacobs - who has been with the company for over 30 years. Between them they have unparalleled experience in the field of image presentation in its various forms over the last 40 years. We have sponsored the TPOTY competition since 2003.
Plastic Sandwich has clients all over the world, in fact wherever there is a photographic industry. Our custom-made and branded books, made from a single piece of top grain aniline dyed leather, have become an industry standard for photographers, their assistants and students, who find the advice we can offer of great help.
Plastic Sandwich's services are also utilised by companies such as event and PR organisations, film companies, high-end presenters, and anyone whose activities or craft are best shown through the presentation of images. We are now direct suppliers to Jaguar Land Rover.
The Prize In Detail
CATEGORIES - Young TPOTY, New Talent - Metropolis, Extraordinary and Wild Stories
The winners of the New Talent award and Wild Stories portfolio category, the Young Travel Photographer of the Year and the runner up in One Shot - Extraordinary, will receive a personalised Plastic Sandwich leather portfolio for a print portfolio or an iPad 2 or 3 Folio for their digital portfolio.
The iPad folio comes with a pocket on the left hand side to hold cards. When the Apple iPad Case is slotted into the pocket, there is an angle support for easy viewing of the screen. We've made the iPad 2 and 3 Folio version with the tablet easily removable in order to utilize the extra features of this second edition.
Plastic Sandwich leather portfolio books are made from a single piece of high-quality leather, and offer a new approach to conventional bookbinding. This classy and simple structure throws the emphasis directly onto the photographer's own images without distraction and adds a great tactile quality.
The photographer's name is embossed in either Plastic Sandwich's house lettering, or a block can be made from the photographer's logo. Books can be made to order in any size or format, in a choice of colours.
