I decided it was about time I entered another photography competition as its been a while since the last one!.
I was bowled over to receive notification that one of the images I had entered into the British Photography Awards competition had made the shortlist! There were several categories being judged, my image was in the 'Street' category. There was also a 'People's Choice Award' where people voted for one image in each category.
Unfortunately I didn't get past the 240 image shortlist stage but I am nevertheless really proud of getting this far. Tens of thousands of images are submitted to competitions like this so it is an endorsement of my skills as a photographer. It has boosted my confidence about entering competitions and also made me more aware of the best images I have on my Flickr photostream.
