2015 Professional Photography Awards

You know when there are noticeable gaps in this blog, that things behind the scenes are a bit mad.

Well, certainly that has indeed been the case in recent weeks. In no small part due to the annual NZIPP-Epson Iris Professional Photography Awards (what a mouthful!!).

This year judging was held in Queenstown last month, with well over 1000 entries. As usual, the standard was exceptional, and something that as a small country we should be very proud of.

All category winners & images can be viewed here:

Here are some of my entries, entered across Documentary, Wedding Classic, Landscape and Portrait Classic categories. While I missed the elusive golds this year, I did manage 6 out of 7 medal placings in bronze and silver.

Personally, the actual tally isn’t the key indicator. It’s the challenge of competing, receiving judging feedback, and the chance to remain valid in a busy market. Add to that, a perfect opportunity to catch up with photographers from all around Australasia, many of whom are now close friends.
