This week, I received notice that I have been nominated for an Avi Choice Award for the Arts in the category Favorite Photographer/Photo Studio. I can say I was shocked to receive another nomination, but at the same time I was touched and pleased. I honestly hadn’t realised the awards were coming around until a couple of weeks ago when Cheri messaged me to let me know she had nominated me. She suggested that I ask for nominations on my blog, but that just isn’t my style. The nomination is, to me, the real honour; I wouldn’t feel right about asking people to put my name forward. The fact that more than one person chose to nominate me without prompting lets me know that what I do here is appreciated.
That said, now that I have been nominated, I will humbly ask for your vote. All you need to do is to click on the image below or in my sidebar, scroll to the Favorite Photographer/Photo Studio category, click the button next to my name and then press the Vote button. While you are there, please peruse the other entries; there are loads of very talented people listed in the Arts categories. I don’t know a lot of them, in fact, I wasn’t even familiar with several of the categories, but there were even more to which I was happy to give my support.
I feel honoured to be asking for your support. I probably wouldn’t continue taking photographs without the encouragement I receive.
Or maybe I would. I’m just glad I don’t have to find out.
