I just found out I am a nominee in the Masters of Color Photography competition in the Professional Photojournalism section. I had completely forgotten I’d entered it about 6 months ago so it was a nice surprise to get the news..!! I generally judge the quality of a competition by who else enters and whose work I have respect for and there are many other very good photographers nominated so I’m more than happy to be amongst them. The rest of the winners and nominees can be found here. International Color Awards.
The nominated picture was taken a while ago on assignment to Afghanistan to cover the Presidential Elections and remains one of my most memorable trips. Kabul is a pretty amazing place to work and seeing people voting for the first time to regain their country after decades of war was a privilege.
