Photography Awards for 2017

 

After taking a couple of years off from entering the monthly image competition with The Societies (this was so that I could judge the end of year awards) I decided to enter again in 2017.  The competitions are always very competitive and hard to achieve awards with.  In any given month you can expect over 10,000 images entered throughout the various categories.  Of that number there is usually less than 100 Gold awards in total.  In 2017 I am pleased that I was awarded with 8 Gold awards for some of my images.  The images and the categories that they achieved a Gold award in are below.
