This past February I submitted several photos to the Black & White Spider Awards.
Celebrating its 10th year, Black & White Spider Awards is the leading international award honoring black & white photography. A global platform and channel for photographers to show their work to important key industry taste-makers.
Winners and nominees are recognized in a night of online gala celebrations when photography fans around the globe log on for the climax of the annual Photoshow and pay tribute to the most outstanding achievements in black & white photography.
This past Saturday November 21st, the judges announced the nominees and winners across 15 categories for both professional and amateur work. I had submitted my works into the 'people' and 'wildlife' categories and much to my surprise and happiness I was nominated for 5 of photos across both categories. It was really amazing to be recognized even though I did not win. There are a lot of fantastic images that the jury had to choose from so it was gratifying just to be recognized alongside my peers.
It was a fun experience and definitely something I will do again.
