Just received some very welcome news this afternoon – my image Stories From Atlantis has won Nikon UK’s National In-Frame Monthly competition for January, which is subject to a public vote. This is my first competition success of 2012 and I’d like to thank everyone that took the time to vote for my image.
As well as winning one of Nikon’s cameras, my image will be published to Nikon’s user base in their monthly news update which is fantastic exposure and something I’ve wanted to achieve for some time. It’s only my second entry in the competition, my first image Beyond The Red Sea was runner-up in the November 2011 competition. I’m now one step closer to achieving Marcin Bera’s record of two monthly wins – it must be a good sign of things to come – Marcin shot to fame with his wonderful seascape images which have received high acclaim in the Take A View Landscape Photographer Of The Year.
