I awoke to some exciting news from the other side of the world the other day - I won the New Zealand Geographic Photographer of the Year Award for 2014, for the Photostory category.
I submitted 6 images from my most recent trip to the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary with Sea Shepherd, aboard the Steve Irwin, and obviously the judges liked them!
This is the first competition like this that I've entered, so to be complimented in this way is mind-blowing.
I'll post the winning images once I get back to my computer, as I'm still moving around Europe.
