i was lucky enough to be awarded one gold and seven silver awards in last weekend's aipp nsw epson print awards. i entered the maximum three categories with the four mandatory prints in each. i entered into the travel, landscape and portrait categories. i was really surprised to win so many awards - 8 out of the 12 and i even made it as a finalist in the travel category. considering this was my first time entering these awards I couldn't be happier. the gold award really blew me away as not many achieve this level. my award winning prints can be seen in the awards section of this website but i have included the gold winning print below from the landscape category. also a big congrats to linda beks who not only won two individual categories but also was named the nsw professional photographer of the year!
