NZIPP 2016 Iris Awards

The Iris Awards is New Zealand’s only professional photography competition. The aim of these print awards is to recognise and honour the best in contemporary photography from New Zealand and overseas. The awards showcase cutting-edge imagery and top, creative photographic talent. They celebrate the excellence, providing a platform for recognition within the industry and the wider public. The event also raises the profile of photography throughout New Zealand, providing an annual showcase of cutting-edge imagery and creative photographic talent. It provides an excellent opportunity for photographers to gain widespread exposure for the fruits of their creative talent.

The Iris Awards are open to all photographers in New Zealand and to members of approved overseas professional photography organisations by entering up to 10 prints across a range of categories. All prints are judged in an open forum over a three-day period, the best of which are awarded gold, silver and bronze awards. The judging sessions are open to the public in order to educate, inspire and inform.

This year I first won a Gold Award, a Silver Award and two Bronze Awards at the Travel Category. I was then awarded Gold with Distinction, a Gold Award plus two Silver Awards in the Portrait Classic category and finished with two Bronze Awards in the Portrait Creative category. These awards placed me as a Finalist in both the Portrait Classic and the Travel categories!

The competition which was held in Wellington this year ended with a Gala dinner where I became a Fellow of the NZIPP and went on to win the prestigious award for the Highest Scoring Print (out of 1,139 entries) for the Bare Truth set showing below.
