Last Sunday 14th October 2012, I attended the Master Photography Awards at The Gateshead Hilton in Newcastle. I had seven entries that made it into the finals and I was a finalist in the Landscape category with the following image, taken in Jasper, Canada, I was very pleased with myself! So now I’m allowed to use the text: Award of Excellence Landscape & Travel category 2012 Master Photography Diamond Jubilee Awards. This was the image:
However the best was yet to come. The “Events” category came up towards the end of the presentation. I was elated to see that my image taken at the London Fashion Weekend was the winner! This had already won a Gold award a few months ago, but this was my highest photographic honour to date!
And here I am receiving the Award:
Just in case you wondered, I’m the handsome bloke in the middle! So now I can officially add the following text to my documents: 2012 Master Photography Diamond Jubilee Awards Functions & Social Events Category Winner. That is a bit of a mouthful, but I’ll settle for that!
There were some quite incredible images that were presented with Awards, and it really is an honour for me to be among the winners. So, now that I have a taste for this sort of success, I think I’ll go for more next year!
