It's official! I was awarded 8th place in the details category of this huge international competition! The final round of judging was streamed live over 9 hours a couple of weeks ago and I only managed to catch snippets as I was at my work Christmas party.
I didn't quite believe I'd placed but here it is, published on their website!
I love this photo of Kalyan's shoulder in the shower, I have it framed in my home.
" These award-winning photographs have been through two rounds of critical review and selection. Congratulations to winners! "
" WE ARE PROUD TO SHARE WITH YOU THE AWARD-WINNING PHOTOGRAPHS FROM OUR 6TH INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION CELEBRATING THE VERY BEST IN DOCUMENTARY FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY."
"Award winners were chosen during the final round of live-judging filmed in Seattle, WA, USA and subsequently streamed online around the world on December 13, 2019. Viewers had the opportunity to watch the unfiltered discussions and constructive feedback as winners were collectively chosen by esteemed judges Kirsten Lewis Bethamn (United States), Jenna Shouldice (Canada) and Huy Nguyen (United States)."
I've since discovered I also had a finalist image in the "100 days of summer" category! Another favourite of my kids waiting with their friends for a turn on the slide...
Well, actually only Priya is in the photo, Kalyan was the one on the slide! ;)
