NZ Geographic – Finalist
I’m one of 22 chosen finalists (of 3200 entries) in New Zealand to make it to the finals of the New Zealand Geographic Photographer of the Year 2014 photo competition (woohoo). I entered the photo-story category using a series of images I have produced on the New Zealand Clown Doctors. The images chosen for this competition are shown below.
There is a great selection of images amongst the finalists and I feel honored to have my pictures displayed alongside them.
The People’s Choice award is open for public voting and as a shameless plug, I implore everyone who reads this post to do your civic duty……..and vote for my images. A link to the voting page is here:
Many thanks for your support…….
