Following my previous journal entry where I announced the news that I had won the Location Flash category of the Professional Photographer of The Year Awards 2013, the awards ceremony was held in Cheltenham on Thursday evening this past week. Now, I'm not entirely used to awards evenings or recognition from my peers... So I have to admit it felt a little alien arriving and being recognised immediately from last years awards before I'd even had a chance to open my mouth on the door to confirm who I was. With all the category winners and runners up previously announced, there was only one big announcement that everyone was waiting for at the end of the night. The overall winner.
Well, much to my surprise... This happened:
I can't thank the judges and staff at Professional Photographer magazine enough. I am truly astounded, amazed, thankful and still in a little bit of disbelief, think it's gonna take a while to sink in!
