Master Photographer Luke Edmonson Wins At Prestigious Canon AIPP Australian Professional Photography Awards
Dallas, TX photographer Luke Edmonson received the International Photographer Of The Year at the prestigious 2014 Canon AIPP Australian Professional Photography Awards held in Melbourne from 12th to 14th of September 2014.
“The International Photographer Of The Year is meant to celebrate one photographer but it is much more representative of the impact that AIPP members have across our global photographic community. Your voice is relevant; it’s important and it resonates far beyond your shores with your incredible ambassadors. The organization is known for its high standards of superior craftsmanship, art and ingenuity. To have received this award is both exceedingly humbling and thrilling!”
The award-winning photographs were a combination of Wedding, Portrait and Fashion entries.
The Canon AIPP Australian Professional Photography Awards attract thousands of entries from around the country and overseas each year. The awards are the leading recognition for Professional Photographers and as such are highly coveted.
The competition takes place over three days by a 5 person panel of judges, selected for their skill, knowledge and experience. To be recognised by your peers in this fashion is one of the highest forms of recognition a professional photographer can achieve.
“The Canon AIPP Australian Professional Photography Awards provide the ideal vehicle for professional photographers to understand the standard of their photography relative to their peers and other experts from around the country. Professional photographers who enter these awards are always striving to improve their entry standard, and as a consequence, the level of professional photography is steadily growing.”
Said AIPP Executive Officer Peter Myers
“That’s why Australian photographers are considered to be amongst the best in the world.”
