This year was my first time entering the prestigious Australian Professional Photography Awards (APPA). Up to 4 prints can be entered and are judged by the best photographers in the industry.
The entries were all judged live at the Digital Show on the weekend at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre. Being there to watch the judging was pretty cool and was certainly an interesting process. Some of the photographs entered were unbelievable. There are certainly a few talented photographers in Australia.
To top it off I walked away with 3 Silver Awards myself and ironically it was Yellow Bus (a previous award winner) that missed out this time. To say I’m absolutely wrapped is an understatement and certainly inspires me to try and raise the bar for next year. APPA 2013 here I come hahaha.
For those in the know regarding points my prints scored the following:
Ghan Tank – 83 pts (Silver)
Unnamed Hill – 81 pts (Silver)
Railway Crossing – 80 pts (Silver)
Yellow Bus – 76 pts
