I recently entered the 2015 ACT AIPP EPSON Photographic Awards, with a selection of images from my personal projects. I find using the awards each year helps me complete my projects and forces me to expand my skillset and grow my abilities.
I was fortunate to win 3 silver awards and a silver with distinction award in the portrait category, from my four entries. This also made me a finalist for the 2015 portrait photographer of the year award.
I always look forward to entering AIPP awards, both state and national. Not to win awards but the process to create new and exciting pieces.
Enjoy life my friends.
