2014 Iris Award Judging

I’ve just arrived in Rotorua for this years Epson Iris Awards (professional photography awards). I am on the Honours Council of NZIPP, tasked with running the whole judging event.

The venue is great, our gear has all arrived, & we have a heap of print cases. Let the work begin tomorrow setting this all up ready for the first day of judging on Thursday. It is always an exciting time, waiting for prints to be judged. Some of New Zealand’s finest talent will be on show, plus some amazing work from many newcomers. People pour their heart and soul into their prints, and the results never cease to blow me away. I’ll post more as judging continues.
