Professional Photography Award Win

18 Jun 2017 -- Posted by : Pamela

While I was overseas running my Christmas Island Photography workshop the judging for the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) state award was happening in Perth.

I like to enter the AIPP awards as you are judged by your professional industry peers and you gain valuable critique of your work. I had prepared my prints in Broome earlier and left them in Perth en route to Christmas Island. I was a bit disappointed that I couldn't be in Perth at the judging to get feed back on my prints, but AIPP organise video streaming of the judging, so when I could get time and a decent internet connection I could find out how the judging was going.

After a busy week on Christmas Island it was time to head off for a little R&R on Cocos Island. I thought I better check on how my prints were going in the judging so I logged on to the internet and much to my surprise and excitement I found out I had not only done well with my prints but they had won me the title of Science, Wildlife and Wild Places Photographer of the Year for Western Australia.

I was so proud and excited, and it all seemed so appropriate that I was on the remote Cocos Islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean, with little internet connection, no mobile phone reception and a couple of new friends from my CI photography workshop to celebrate with........yay for Wild Places!
