I am really happy to announce that four out of my five submissions to the last IPA International Photography Awards 2010 have been awarded. One of my images got the first prize in the Wildlife category, a portfolio of forest panoramic images got a second prize in the category "Seasons", a portfolio of 5 images of Scotland in winter got a "Highly Commended" award and another image of a camelthorn tree under the namibian night sky also was highly commended by the jury.
The 2010 International Photography Awards received nearly 15,000 submissions from 103 countries across the globe. IPA is a sister-effort of the Lucie Foundation, where the top three winners are announced at the annual Lucie Awards gala ceremony in New York. The Foundation's mission is to honor master photographers, to discover new and emerging talent and to promote the appreciation of photography. Since 2003, IPA has had the privilege and opportunity to acknowledge and recognize contemporary photographers' accomplishments in this specialized and highly visible competition.
