Judging UWMP 2012 Awards

The Facebook group Underwater Macro Photographers has chosen the winners of their 2012 Awards, and I was honoured to be asked to be one of the judges. Let me tell you, it was hard to choose!



Posted on Jan 29, 2013
The very popular Facebook group was founded by Australian underwater photographer Ken Thongpila in late 2011, and already has over 4.100 members from around the globe.

Every month an eNews magazine is issued, containing the most popular images from the past month, short stories on the best macro destinations, photo tips and portfolios.

First annual awards

The winners of the first annual awards in the following categories has just been made public:

      • Best eNews Cover Photo of the Year
      • Spotlight Macro Photographer of the Year
      • Photographer Achievement of the year
      • Photo Tips Article of the Year
      • Dive Holiday Report of the Year

I was honoured to be asked to be one of the judges, but let me tell you... it was pretty hard to choose, especially among the portfolios where some of the World's top macro photographers were going head-to-head in a spectacular picture bonanza.

If you haven't yet joined the Underwater Macro Photographers it is about time you do, because there is a lot to learn and many tips to be picked up from this group. Naturally, the monthly eNews magazine also is something to look forward to.

PS! I was featured and nominated in one of the categories myself, but the strict rules for the judges clearly stated that I could not vote for myself.
