to elevate the entire photography industry,
The overall objectives of the awards are:
- to elevate the entire photography industry,
- to create an industry of highly skilled photographers with a passion to grow and learn, and
- to give them the tools they need to develop a sustainable business for years to come.
I entered into three categories in the Rise International Photography Awards: Maternity, Family and Creative.
I won Bronze in two categories! I didn’t expect to achieve in any category as the standard of previous winners was so high.
The written feedback on every image entered and that was worth the entry fee alone. Constructive criticism is super valuable for artistic development.
I have never had any professional feedback on my images before and I was nervous to receive it. Creating art is very personal and I find it hard not to take criticism negatively – always working on this!
I’ll post the feedback on the images in my next post. I figured if it’s good for my development, it could be helpful for others too 🙂
