For many years I’ve been meaning to enter the AIPP photographic awards. Every year I’ve made excuses, but this year I said to myself “I’ve got to do it” – so I did! It’s a little bit intimidating for a first timer. Basically, you can enter prints into a variety of categories and these are then judged by five professional photographers. The judging is open to the public and the prints can be commented on or debated about. It’s actually a really interesting process to watch. It was inspiring to not only see some amazing images, but to also hear the opinions of five acclaimed photographers as well.
In the end I did really well! I was named
AIPP Victorian landscape photographer of the year
and was also awarded
highest scoring print in the landscape category!
I also scored a silver award for a wedding image. I have posted all of the winning images below.
