The Irish Blog Awards sent out emails to the Finalists for this year's Awards and my Blog was on the list, in the Best Photography Blog - Personal Blog section. I had to check twice just to be sure, but, sure enough, my Blog was listed. The graphic for this section of the process is a cat and I love cats, so that was cool too. Congratulations to all the other finalists, I wish you well in the final round and hope to see you all in Tramline on the 25th of October. I am thrilled to have gotten to this stage, thank you to all the Judges for volunteering your time to this.
My blog has been shortlisted for the Irish Blog Awards, which is great news. I know, however, that I will not progress further due to the superior quality of the other Blogs. I wish the other shortlisted blogs the very best of luck in the next round of voting. Thank you to the organisers and judges of the awards for looking at my Blog. I appreciate your time and efforts.
My blog has been longlisted for the 2018 Irish Blog Awards, sponsored by Alcatel, this is the second year that this has happened. I have been told that pretty much all the blogs get longlisted, I hope I get to move along the process in time. Last year I was shortlisted but did not make it to the finalist event in the Mansion House. I was sent the lovely owl graphic below to display on my blog to indicate that I have been longlisted. My Blog has appeared on two lists published by the Blog Award organisers, one is the Best Photography (Personal) Blog and the second one is the Best Lifestyle (Personal) Blog category, which has an incredibly long list of 106 Blogs, covering a wide variety of interests. I won't be including links to all of those blogs, as this post would be far too long. I wish all of those authors the very best of luck and look forward to watching them progress through the next couple of levels of judging.
I was fortunate that Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council decided to share my Blog about some of the events that they host. here is the link to their post. Thank you Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Country Council. https://www.facebook.com/dlrheritageevents/posts/1873834472649043
I was thrilled to be asked by the IFI to take some photos of the World Premiere of the Documentary film Noel Hill Aisling Ghéar in January 2018. It is always fun to shoot the events at the IFI as the atmosphere is always relaxed and the people are interesting. I have included a link to the IFI Facebook Album of the event.
