The biggest and most prestigeous Australian Photographic awards is know as the “Australian Photographer of the year Awards.” In 2011 these were held at Darling Harbour, Sydney. For 6 years we have consistently won awards. I guess the thing I love about competing is it puts up a challenge and a goal. In short, you are forced to continuously improve and lift the standard of work. This year 3 of the 4 images we submitted scored Silver awards. Each print is judged by a panel of 5 judges. Finding out your results is like opening your end of year school or uni results. Your pulse is racing, you feel uneasy and you just hope the blood sweat and tears pays off.
