International Aperture Awards

Just received notification that one of my images from a recent trip to Tasmania has received a Silver Award. I entered 3 images last minute and it looks like only 1 at this stage has been judged, so fingers crossed the other 2 images fair well … I guess you never know what the judges look for and in my case I have used the last 2 or 3 comps to gauge if I am taking that could be considered in competitions …

I tried to enter not my best or favorite images but my most recent work to also gauge where I am  … Although in saying that I did pull an older image from 12 months ago just re-tweeked a little … we’ll see how they fair I guess …

I entered all 3 images into the “Open Section” of the competition. I am not a professional, but I want to take as good an image as a professional so i thought why not enter the most competitive section …

A little info about the competition and awards can be found here :

The International Aperture Awards, one of the world’s richest online photography competitions. This is the 3rd year of the competition, which is open to professional and amateur photographers worldwide. With a total prize pool of over US$80,000, including a first prize in the Open competition of US$20,000 in cash, the competition attracts some of the best international professional and amateur photography.


Below is the award I was given and the image in question …

and the original image I posted a few weeks back on the blog …

  3. Yippeeee…You’re the man 🙂

    • Cheers Patrick … Never entered a comp till this year when I enter 3 … Not sure comps are for me but I guess I had to try it out to see what the experience was like … Photography for me is not a competition but more a way of bringing what some may not see at either locations or the time of the day.
