Winning Image – 2017 Sony World Photography Awards
2017 National Awards - Sony World Photography Awards
In Feb I received some fantastic news and have been sworn to secrecy until now. I have won first place in the biggest photography contest in the world in the National Awards as part of the 2017 Sony World Photography Awards.
I entered my image called "Bogside Bonfire" as part of a series in the Open category in the awards. My photo was selected as the best single image taken by a photographer from Ireland. Keeping this news under wraps over the past month or so has been so hard but it is now official. You can check out my picture and the other winners on the World Photography Organisations website.
My prize includes a Sony a7II camera and a trip to London to the black tie gala event - 2017 Sony World Photography Awards ceremony. Amazing!
I have always dreamed of winning an award as prestigious as this. I have admired the high standard of photography in these awards over the years and now to be included as one of the winners is my biggest achievement to date.

My picture will feature as part of the exhibition in the World Photography Organisationexhibition in Somerset house in London for a week beginning on 21st April.
This is a massive step in my photography career and I am so excited to be part of this fantastic opportunity.
