|Cherries by Bill Gekas|
A few days ago I was notified by the organizers in Malaysia that i'm one of the 30 finalists with my photo 'Cherries' in the open category of the Kuala Lumpur International Photoawards 2012. From over 2300 photos submitted to the three categories from a wide global talent, the judges had to select 40 finalists for the portrait category, 30 finalists for the open category and 5 finalists for the photo essay category.
Last year I was a finalist in the portrait category and am more than pleased to have made it through again this year also being one of the only three Australians from the whole competition!
All finalist prints will be displayed in a public exhibition at The Warehouse Gallery in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 2nd June to 17th June 2012.
