Ho, a self-taught photographer from Singapore, also won Rest of World Portfolio of the Year, Overseas Portrait Photographer and Wedding Photographer titles; plus the contest’s Fine Art & Pictorial and Wedding Art and Fashion categories.

Speaking after a presentation in Newcastle, Ho – who joined the MPA just four months ago – said she was shocked at winning so many awards.

Clare Louise won UK Portfolio of the Year for the second time in a row, while the Best UK Commercial Photographer title went to David MacDonald.
