I'm rather thrilled to say that this image recently won a Royal Photographic Society (of GB) Gold Medal at the Cheltenham International Salon of Photography for 2013, for Best Monochrome Creative.
I'm even more thrilled to receive a note from them today to ask for a high res' copy of the image so that it can be featured on the back cover of their Exhibition Catalogue.
The image will also be on display at the gallery showing of images at the Queens Hotel in Cheltenham on June 3rd - if you happen to be in the vicinity to go see.
I've only been entering these International Photography competitions for less than a year and rather chuffed to have a tidy number of ribbons and medals already!
It's not only gratifying to see your work accepted on an international platform but it's also helped to push my photography and creative editing to another (and I hope better level) and I have to say I'm quite loving the challenge!
