NZIPP Iris Awards 2019

After entering my work into the Iris Awards for the first time in 2018, I was all fired up to go big in 2019. However, as is often the case life got in the way and I only ended up creating two images for the competition at the last minute.

Ended up with two bronzes, which I am fairly content with under the circumstances.

NZIPP Iris Awards 2018

My first time entering the Iris Awards. Working for myself I could never justify the cost of entering (including the professional printing etc) but thankfully teaching part-time at UCOL has meant that I can enter at academic rates and be supported by the organisation.

Entered 5 images and got awarded one Silver with Distinction, three Bronze and one Professional Standard. Pretty pleased, seeing that only one of the images was taken specifically for the competition, while the rest were taken from my normal work portfolio.
