Moran Prize …

When I first arrived in  India I received the pleasant news that two of my images made the semi-finals of the Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize 2011.

A few days later whilst well into our Rajasthan road trip the news got even better and  that yet another of my images was selected as a Finalist and a contender for the huge $100,000 prize. (Not that I have any illusions that it will be successful in that regard!)

The Moran is the richest and one of the most regarded photographic prizes in Australia (indeed the World) and it is indeed an honour to be selected alongside the work of some amazing photographers.

The three images selected are below … top is the ‘Finalist’ … an image entitled ‘Cyclone’ taken in the wake of category 5 Cyclone Yasi. Below are the two semi-finalists … ‘Carol – Burns Survivor’ and ‘Ivan Bamboo – Meths Drinker’.
