London, UK, November 07, 2012 -- Grays of Westminster are delighted to announce their Grand Christmas Dinner at The Institute of Directors (IoD), London on Friday, 7th December, 2012, 6.30 p.m. – 10.30 p.m.

The guest speaker this year is Britain’s most highly awarded press photographer, Mike Maloney OBE.

The evening will comprise a superb Christmas dinner in the magnificent period restaurant at the Institute of Directors at 116 Pall Mall, London, followed by a unique opportunity to listen to Mike Maloney’s amazing stories as he presents some of his images from a thirty-year career at the top of his field. Proceedings will begin at 6.30pm with a Champagne reception followed by an introduction and welcome by Gray Levett (founder of Grays of Westminster), the Christmas meal, then Mike Maloney’s talk in the Morning Room.

Special Prize
The prize-draw will be held during the evening and one lucky attendee will walk away with a brand-new pair of Nikon High-Grade 10×25 London 2012 Olympics Binoculars worth £469, courtesy of Nikon UK! Waterproof and fog-free, these binoculars offer powerful features (including a close focusing distance of 3.2m.), with a compact foldable design convenient for carrying. Environmentally friendly materials have been used for the body, eyepiece caps, case and strap and the eco-glass optics are free from lead and arsenic.

The IoD is a grand Regency building and its sweeping marble staircase and vast walls covered in 18th and 19th century canvases provides a spectacular backdrop for the evening; the period restaurant at the IoD is a most fitting venue for this elegant, traditional Christmas celebration.

Cost of the evening: £155 per ticket, £95 for current Nikon Owner subscribers.*

About Mike Maloney
Mike Maloney has won over 107 major photographic awards and, in 2005, became the only “Fleet Street” photographer to have been awarded the OBE for services to photo-journalism. Three times voted Press Photographer of the year, he was Chief Photographer for Mirror Group Newspapers before turning freelance in 2002.

Mike is a Freeman of the City of London, and was awarded an honorary Doctor of Arts degree by the University of Lincoln, his hometown, for “a lifetime’s work in photography and his help to young people.” At the ceremony in Lincoln Cathedral he was able to read out a personal letter of congratulations from Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Mike was known to be the Queen Mother’s favourite press photographer.

He is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and a fellow of the British institute of Professional Photographers. Mike has held several exhibitions of his work.

This year, Mike is to teach aspiring photographers at the University of Lincoln after accepting a Visiting Professorship.
