International Photo Awards 2014

IPA 2014..

I found out today that I received an Honorable Mention for my image called "Dream Time" in the category Fine Art : Landscape NON-PRO. See here

I must say that i'm very humble and honored to receive this kudos. To be among some of my fellow peers that I look up to and follow gives me a surreal and great feeling at the same time.

I'd like to thank the IPA jury for the consideration and congratulations to all the other photographers who got a mention.

The category winners are to be announced on 30 Sept 2014 and Photographer of the Year will be 2nd Nov 2014.

Australian Photography + Digital Magazine - Fujifilm X Landscape Photographer of the Year 2013

Late Blog Post.

I entered in my portfolio of 6 Black and White images called "A Study in Black & White Long Exposure Photography" into the AP Fujifilm X Landscape Photographer of the Year 2013. I was quite surprised to learn that out of 800 entries i made it into the top 25.

I'd like to congratulate Debbie Fowler for taking out 1st place for her Aerial photography and the other top 24 photographers. Well done.

The International Photography Awards

After i got into photography i thought to myself, what is a good measure that i'm improving in this art form and gets recognized by my peers? A recognizable photography award.

I had found out about a competition called the IPA's and some of the photographers i had been following had received awards from it in the past. I thought gee, it would be good to get an award from the IPA's just like the photographers i have been following and learning from. I thought to myself i'm getting close to the stage where i'm happy and comfortable with my images being criticized or scored so i should enter some in the 2013 IPA's. I entered 2 images and was well surprised that i received in my first year for 1 of them an....



For the image "Ocean" a B&W Minimalist Nightscape.

Just to make it clear i didn't receive an award but a recognition of the photo i entered. It has encouraged me to improve my photography and processing skills for next year where i hope to get an award and/or mention.

My plan for next year is to make a series of images to enter that are similar to each other or tell a story. I find these sets of images more compelling and take you deep into thought about them and why were they taken. (Now what to shoot and what do i have to say??)

Congrats to all the other photographers who entered, won an award or was given an honorable mention.  There is still the International Photographer of the Year award and others to be awarded so don't forget to watch their site.
