The accolade is hugely unexpected which makes it even better.
A few months ago I got an email from someone in New York who suggested I enter the photo-project I did called "Empty London" - various photos of London without people, see it here.
Thinking there was never a chance I would even be recognised - it seems to be a space for the likes of the BBC or CNN and er, Microsoft - I entered almost in spite of their advice and forgot about it.
Fast-forward a few months and an email pings into my inbox announcing the accolade!
And there it is...
Funnily enough, I'm nominated in the same category as CNN and er, Microsoft! (Plus Pitchfork Media and NPR, amongst others...)
Elsewhere, I have also been honored in the category "Personal Blog/Website", partly for some of the work that appears on the blog you're looking at!
Photographing London without any people was pretty gruelling - alone on Christmas morning, standing in the rain so it's doubly satisfying to have been recognised. Thank you thank you thank you!
In the spirit of sharing, you can check out the other honorees in my latter category, below.
