In some exciting news, I learned early this morning that my Snowy Owl photograph titled, ‘Phantom of the Opera’ took out the Best of Nation award at the 2022 World Photographic Cup. The photograph is now also a top ten Finalist in the Nature Category. The Gold, Silver and Bronze medals will be announced in March in two months’ time – fingers crossed!
I have previously represented Australia at the World Photographic Cup and taken out Bronze and Silver medals for Australia in the Nature category. I took out the Silver medal last year 2021 with my photograph of the Emperor Penguin family and the Bronze medal in 2019 with an image of a giant tabular iceberg, also from Antarctica.
