Grand Prize Winner of PDN Faces Competition 2011
Zoo Studio have got some REALLY exciting news!
We are the Grand Prize Winners for the PDN Faces 2011 International photography competition.
Photo District News, the largest professional photography magazine in the USA, recently held an international photography competition for portraiture, the PDN Faces competition. We entered, as it is really the only international photography competition of note that has a dedicated Animal Portraiture category. There were thousands of entries, including some of the very very best photographers anywhere, giving us the chance to see how we are staking up globally.
We won!! Not only did we win the animal portraiture category (the only Australian photographer to make the finals), but our photo was selected by the judges as the very best in the whole competition winning us the Grand Prize! All photos entered came from our standard client photography sessions, not from specially setup sessions with trained animals.
Here is the winning image of Cheeky the Eclectus Parrot, his Mum is very proud and so are we.
