Gold at the International Loupe Awards

Received some fantastic news this week.

One of the images I entered into the International Loupe Awards won a Gold Award.

This was my first time entering this competition and my first Gold in an international photography competition.

I almost didn’t enter this year but got a reminder and entered at the eleventh hour and just got my my entries in before the deadline.

This month saw the judging of the 2013 Epson International Pano Awards and after waiting on the results for what seemed like forever I woke up last week to a fantastic suprise.

My image above from Breaker Bay in NZ won a Silver Award!

The goal for this year was to gain a Silver Award so I am stoked with this result.

I received a few more Bronze Awards as well which I will post later on.

Silver at the NSW AIPP Awards

I was honored to receive 3 Silver awards at the Epson NSW Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) awards this year.

The AIPP awards are one of the only photography competitions where you must submit a print, and all judging is based on the print itself not on a digital image viewed on a monitor.

This means the final product you are producing is judged on colour balance, sharpness, overall image impact/message, print quality, everything that a customer would see when viewing a print. If a photographer slips up on any of these areas being judged it affects their final score.

So as well as producing an image that will impress the judging panel there are the added factors of print quality and production to stress over.

These awards are really worthwhile, they push me get the best possible image and print I can and to receive the recognition of 3 Silver awards is amazing.

 

These are my awarded images.
