AIPP ACT/NSW Professional Photography Awards

Back in March I let everyone know on the Akemi Photography Facebook Page  how it went at the Australian Institute of Professional Photography ACT and NSW State photography awards.  In case you missed it, I was incredibly pleased (and surprised I must add) to receive two Gold Awards, two Silver with Distinction Awards and four Silver Awards.  An incredible outcome and well beyond any expectations that I had in entering.  Anyway, a number of my friends on the page asked to see the images entered, so here are those that received Silver Awards.

A sweet little moment captured last year between a girl and her guinea pig.  The Guinea Pigs name is ‘Black Eyed Pea’ and I think thats just awesome!

This lovely kitty is Nancy and will hear a little more about this gal and some of her friends in the coming months – she’s part of a special project that I’ve been working on….!

That now makes three awards that this image has won having received a Highly Commended in the Edge Imaging Excellence Awards and Winner Group Portrait in the WPPI Second Half 10×8 Competition.  I’m pretty pleased that people seem to like it because I love this photo!  Its exactly what Akemi Photography stands for – capturing your entire family!

This final image was taken at Zion National Park on our recent holiday to the USA.  After a bit of an early morning hike in the dark we were treated to this beautiful sunrise.  Definitely made the early morning worthwhile!

The Silver with Distinction and Gold Award prints, I have entered into the National Awards which will be judged this weekend.  I’ll post these when I know how they go – wish me luck because they will be mixed in with the photography of some of the incredibly talented photographers found in Australia. Actually that said, if they bomb, I may not!!
