2018 is starting off great! After being honored with a 16th place worldwide at ISPWP, some more great news came my way today. This time it was about the Fearless Awards.
Winning a Fearless Award is no easy feat. I had been trying for a while, to no avail. But persistence wins, and in 2016 I finally received my first Fearless award. To this day, I can remember that moment as if it were yesterday.
Today’s awards however came as quite the surprise. Somehow, I totally missed the announcements for the contest results. So the message I received from my colleague Marieke this morning was a very pleasant surprise. However, when the Fearless Awards winners are announced on the website, the images are not displayed in any type of order. It took a second message from another fellow photographer to realize that I had won not one but two Fearless awards!
These unexpected awards had another very nice result: With a total of 3 awards over 2017, I made it to the Top Fearless Photographers of 2017 list.
It’s such an honor to be mentioned in the Best Photographers lists of both Fearless Photographers and ISPWP. A couple of years ago, I could only dream of results like these, and it’s very rewarding that the hard work has paid off.
I hope you’ll enjoy these images as much as I do.
