DAILY RECORD MAN'S TOP AWARD.

RECORD photographer Alan Peebles seized his chance last night when he was crowned Magazine Photographer Of The Year at the annual Picture Editors' Awards.

As Alan was given his trophy and his pounds 2000 prize by Tony Blair at London's Guildhall, he slipped his business card and a CD of his best work into the Prime Minister's pocket.

Alan, who beat stiff competition from photographers representing many prestigious glossy magazines, was honoured for his work in the Record's Saturday magazine and other titles.

He said: "I'm very proud that my work has been recognised in this way. The Prime Minister was a bit confused when I slipped the CD into his pocket, but then he realised what I was doing and laughed."

Record picture editor Stuart Nicol said Alan's success was richly deserved. He said: "Alan has a great talent and he has proven he is the best in the business."
