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.
I got an email today informing me that my blog has been Shortlisted! I am thrilled with this news. Thanks to the Judging Panel for including me on such a great list. I really appreciate it.
I am thrilled to discover today, that my Blog has made it on to the Longlist in the Photography Category for the V by Very Blog Awards Ireland 2017. Thank you to the Judges who thought it was good enough for the Longlist.
