At the beginning of May, I received a pretty exciting email! I'd been shortlisted with three images, across three categories in the Siena Creative Photo Awards, 2021.
This was my first time entering the Siena Awards, I rarely enter anything outside the AIPP APPA's, so to be shortlisted with three of four images was magic. I didn't get any further than that, and the winners have just been announced. I encourage you to take a look at the gallery for this year. It's pretty amazing.
My entries were in Open, Architecture, and Abstract. Having not entered before I wasn't really sure which category to go into, so as usual, I left it until the last minute, and made a guess on the fly. These are the shortlisted images.
So, I really enjoyed entering a different competition, and I will most definitely keep an eye out for other competitions. I'd love some ideas, so if you have any pop them in the comments.
