WA Professional Photography Awards 2012

2012 was the first year that I entered the WA Professional Photography Awards (WAPPAs) as an Accredited Member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers (AIPP). Actually it was the first time time that I plucked up the courage to enter my images into any awards.

We have so much amazing talent amongst the photographic industry here in WA, that I always doubted whether my images were worthy of entering.

The Australian Professional Photography Awards (APPAs) had been and gone earlier in the year and I decided not to enter but in hindsight, I should have given it a shot.  Isn’t hindsight a wonderful thing!

I never did share the images, or my results from WAPPAs 2012 with you all, so thought now is as good a time as any to share them.

I am pleased to share that I received the following awards:-

Gold Award – Illustrative Category
Silver Award – Landscape Category
Silver Award – Landscape Category
Silver Award – Illustrative Category
Silver Award – Landscape Category

I will admit there were a few tears that day, as I was so shocked to receive a Gold.  Never in a million years would I have expected that.  It took a good few weeks of pinching myself for it to sink in.

Unfortunately, by the time the 2013 APPAs came around, these images had already passed their two year validity date.  When entering images into the APPAs, the images must have been captured within two years of the awards entry closing date.  I will always wonder how these might have gone at APPAs had I not been such a chicken and entered, particularly the one that received Gold, but happy for the valuable lesson that I learnt instead.
