Today I am in the air on my way to the 2015 New Zealand Institute of Professional Photographers Iris Awards and Conference, which this year is being held in Queenstown (and according to some other NZIPPers who are already there is rather chilly so that might be a bit of a rude shock after a quite temperate week here on beautiful Waiheke!).
The Island is pretty well represented this year at the conference with Waiheke photographers Blair Quax, Alice Doig, Michelle Hepburn and myself all making the journey down south to
kick up our heels, ahem, I mean knuckle down to furthering our photographic prowess.
But before the conference begins, the Epson Iris Awards will be taking place. This is always an exciting and exhausting few days. This year I am on the judging panel again and am really looking forward to seeing the amazing images that I know will come before us. If you have entered, the very best of luck… it takes guts to have your work judged in a public arena like this one, so you are already a champion just for having the courage to do it.
Here’s the judging calendar…
See ya there!
