I was delighted to learn this weekend that my one and only submission into the International Photography Awards this year received an Honourable Mention in the Fine Art – Landscape category.
Celebrating it’s 11th year the International Photography Awards is one of the most prestigious competitions of it’s type. This is the first time I have taken part and after seeing the quality of my fellow photographers submissions I feel somewhat humbled to have been selected.
The 2013 International Photography Awards received nearly 18,000 submissions from 104 countries across the globe. IPA is a sister-effort of the Lucie Foundation, where the top three winners are announced at the annual Lucie Awards gala ceremony. The Foundation’s mission is to honor master photographers, to discover new and emerging talent and to promote the appreciation of photography. Since 2003, IPA has had the privilege and opportunity to acknowledge and recognize contemporary photographer’s accomplishments in this specialized and highly visible competition.
