The annual APPA (Australian Professional Photography Awards) were recently held in Sydney and I’m deeply humbled to announce that I have been awarded with the honour of becoming the 2014 Australian Landscape Photographer of the Year by the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography). I want to send a heartfelt thank you for all the very generous, kind and thoughtful messages that I’ve received from so many special people. I also want to send an enormous thank you to the AIPP for all of the incredible amount of work that they did in organising and running the 2014 APPAs event and the excellent work that the AIPP continuously do as a whole in the interests of bettering the photography industry for all professional photographers in Australia. If you’re not a member already then I highly recommend you join. I also want to acknowledge all of the other photographers who entered this year’s APPAs and congratulate each one of them. I especially want to show my strong appreciation for the generosity of those few photographers that were kind enough to give up their time and help me prepare my entries. Finally, a big congratulations to Sheldon Pettit & Jackie Ranken – Thank you to you both for the inspiration.
