Very excited about my achievement in this year’s NZIPP Iris awards: two Bronze Awards, six Silver Awards and one Silver with Distinction. In addition to being awarded the Distinction ‘Master of Photography’, I became a finalist at the Portrait Classic and Portrait Creative categories. Being a Master of the NZIPP, I can now use the letters MNZIPP after my name.

The New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography celebrates the excellence across a wide range of photographic genres. It provides opportunity for professional photographer to earn merit awards and recognises the outstanding achievement of a small number of photographers through the major awards: photographer of the year, category finalist, category winner, etc. Categories include: Commercial, Creative, Fusion, Illustrative, Landscape, Photojournalism, Portrait Classic, Portrait Creative, Student/Assistant, Travel, Wedding Album, Wedding Classic and Wedding Creative. There were 1,327 print entries this year so delighted to be part of this amazing group!

I also have achieved success across the ditch in AIPP [Australian Institute of Professional Photography] annual awards where I was awarded two Silver Awards in the Illustrative category and a Silver Distinction Award in the Portrait category, denoting superior in imagination craft and skill.

Conducted by some of Australia’s most recognised photographers, judging for the awards took place over three days at the industry’s annual show. Each of the thousands of images entered was critiqued in detail by an esteemed judging panel. The awards were judged according to originality, creativity, technical skills, quality of printing and presentation. The Awards are the most sought-after accolade in Australian professional photography and the standard rises each year due to the fierce competition. The Australian Professional Photography Awards are open to all Australian and overseas professional photographers. The awards represent the best of the best professional photography in Australia.
