Well, another year over for the WAPPA's - and it was a full on week of Print Judging, Seminars and the Awards night.
It was a pleasure to be invited to judge again this year, and I was lucky enough to get a few hours in one of the five judging chairs in the Wedding, Portrait, Album and Travel categories. The more hours I get up my sleeve, the less nervous I'm getting... which still leaves a lot of nerves to get over : )
Our visiting eastern States Judges were Vicki Bell, Mercury Megaloudis and Dan O'Day. ...a wealth of judging experience and enthusiasm - the reason why we need these guys to come over for the State Awards - to mix it up a bit and keep everyone fired up!
Huge thanks and congratulations to the WA AIPP Committee who managed a brilliant Awards once again this year. ...and to Bruce Williams and Epson for their continued support of the State Awards.
Things went well on Day 1 - I managed to pick up the Highest Scoring Print in the Wedding Category for the image below. Captured at the reception of Kali and Paul's wedding only a week before the Prints were due...! Last minute again as usual.
