Unfortunately many of our exhibition and competition activities were cancelled, or postponed indefinitely, because of the Covid-19 Pandemic. However we still managed to pick-up a significant number of major awards and prizes. Most recently both Gigi and Robin were finalist nominees for The International Color Awards 2021. Robin took out the Overall Winner and two Highly Commended images in The International Garden Photographer of the Year 2020 Competition; Gigi was awarded Finalist and Commended in the same competition (which received over 20,000 entries). Together we had 17 images accepted for the Tokyo International Foto Awards 2020; where Gigi won Silver and Robin won Honorable mentions for two portfolio series. We won no less than eight Bronze Awards in the Epson 2020 International Pano Awards - two for Robin, two for Gigi and four joint! We were delighted that three of our images that were accepted into the 2020 Prix De La Photographie Exhibition in Paris received Honourable Mentions. Both Gigi and Robin had four images each nominated for top awards in the 2020 International Fine Art Photography Awards. Gigi also got nominations for two images (one of which then received an Honourable Mention) in the 'Nature' section of the International Colour Awards 2020, a competition that saw entries from photographers in 73 countries. Robin also won nominations in both the 'Nature' and 'Architecture' sections of the same competition. Gigi recently had no less than five images shortlisted for the 2020 UK Landscape Photographer of the Year Award. 2019 had closed with another batch of top awards. Robin won Silver in the 2019 Tokyo International Foto Awards and Gigi won 3 Honourable mentions (one for a series and two for single images). Gigi won three Silver and two Bronze Awards in the 2019 Epson International Pano Awards whilst Robin won Silver. 2019 had got off to a great start with Gigi winning Best Monochrome Print at the San Remo Art Show and First Place in the Chelsea Art show. Robin's photograph of Maria Island was selected by International Landscape Photographer of the Year to be included in the book 'The top 100 Landscape Photographs'. We were both finalists in the 2019 Outdoor Photographer of the Year competition (which attracted over 20,000 entries) and in the 2018 Epson International Photography Competition (which attracted over 15,000 entries from 74 countries) we scooped Silver and 5 Bronze Awards to add to our previous clutch of Gold, three Silver and 12 Bronze Awards! Robin was recently a finalist in the Bowness Photography Prize (Australia's premier fine art photography prize) and we were both finalists in the Lens Mist Competition. We were both short listed for the Outdoor Photographer of the Year out of 18,000 entries from 66 countries: Gigi's ‘Great White Pelicans’ even made it into the book and onto the cover! We also won the Canadian Founder's Award of the Biocommunications Association (BCA) in the US; an Honorable Mention in the International Photography Awards and several first prizes from the BCA.
