NZIPP Iris Awards 2013

Danielle  (NZIPP Gold Awards)

Every year the NZIPP (The New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography) holds a photographic competition that sweeps the country called The Iris Awards, and every year I search my library for images to enter. I judge myself quite harshly I’ve found, as each year I hold no hope for my entries winning a medal and each year I am surprised.

I’ve spoken before of my feelings for these types of competitions, of how I cannot fathom the criteria or reasoning for the awarded scores. I won’t go in to that again since I had a pretty decent rant here.

The main thing is that I did very well this year and I’m quite happy with the results. Thanks goes to everyone who helped create these images and who have supported me over the years!
