It would seem I won!

A few months ago I entered a image in a photo competition run by The Nature Conservancy Australia (link).  I am well aware that these types of competitions are "fishing trips" run by the organisations to pick up some decent images, but I done really care!

In a very low key kind of way I found out last week this this image was one of the 15 that had been selected as an "elite" image - and as far as I can tell they mean its a winner!

So, with an equally low key fanfare, here is the winning image!



I suppose I can describe myself as an Award Winning Photographer now - but I dont think I will!

Cheers - SM

  5. Hey, don't be so modest. I never enter such competitions but then I keep my best for last. What were the others like?

  7. It's about time ... you have been long overdue for some official recognition. The picture is awesome and deserves to be a winner. I can now say I have friends among the greats ... right? This weekend I spent an evening with Jane Goodall and George Archebald ... two of the greatest world conservationists ... and now this. I am overwhelmed :)
    Congratulations, Stewart!
