Wow…where have I been? I logged into the International Photography Awards site because I was getting ready to submit work for the 2010 competition and to my surprise discovered I had received an Honorable Mention for one of my photos submitted last year. I’m not sure how I missed that email – or maybe there wasn’t one?! Here’s the official announcement:
International Photography Awards (IPA) has announced the winners of 2009’s competition.
Shannon McClatchey was Awarded: Honorable Mention in Special – Travel/Tourism category for the winning entry “Vue du café.”
It’s pretty cool considering it was the first international competition I entered and there were nearly 18,000 submissions from 104 countries across the globe. We’ll see what happens this year.
