I am an award-winning photographer!! January marked the first of the biannual submissions for The Portrait Masters Awards and Accreditation in 2021. I am always a bundle of excitement and nerves when entering! How do I choose which images to enter? What will the judges be looking for? Which images might score well?
All images entered are reviewed by 5 grand master judges and an average score is given. In this round over 11,000 submissions were received and I am delighted to have been awarded 4 bronze awards! Each bronze award counts towards a points total and a certain level of points is required to attain associate, master and fellow status. The process of submitting images for accreditation is making me more deliberate about how I create each image, slowing down and noticing the details so I can create some really special portraits.
