Award in Travel Photographer of the Year

Posted on

After fours years of being a finalist, I am unbelievably proud to say that I have had one of my photos awarded! The photo of glow worms was taken in a cave near Waitomo in New Zealand and has been given a highly commended award in the Wildlife and Nature category of Travel Photographer of the Year!

With thousands upon thousands of entries from well over 100 countries around the world, I can’t begin to describe how happy I am about this! I have been a finalist 3 times too, so to go one step further is really exciting…and one step closer to one of my career goals of being the overall winner of Travel Photographer of the Year competition!

It was also an honour to have 8 other photos reach the finalist stage of the Travel Photographer of the Year competition too; 3 other single photos in the wildlife and nature category, 1 image in architecture and spaces, and 1 portfolio of images in the Journeys and Adventure category.
