I hope you don’t think I’m blowing my own trumpet but I’m just so excited I had to tell you about this! I entered my very first photography competition last month. I entered the above photo into the monthly baby competition with the SWPP (Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers) and I’ve just found out that I won a gold award for it! This means that not only do I get published in the magazine ‘Professional Imagemaker’ but I also get shortlisted to win the amazing title of ‘Baby Photographer of the Year 2009’. I won’t find out until the awards ceremony in Jan next year so quite a while to wait but I’m just dead chuffed that I won a gold award in the first compeition I entered! Ok….trumpet blowing over!
