Last night was a magical night, beyond my wildest dreams. I have worked my butt off for 2 years as my eye was trained by the BEST teachers you could ask for. I have been welcomed into the AIPP community and been exposed to the BEST photographic craftsmen & women in the country. I have taken every single photographic opportunity that was put in my path. If the job was voluntary or paid, my efforts were 1000% every single time.
For my final exhibition, i took a chance on a textural handmade product that could have gone either way with the judges, (The Masters of AIPP).
I was awarded NINE GOLD PRINT AWARDS, TWO SILVER PRINT AWARDS, PHOTOIMAGE OF THE YEAR for 'Time is Coming', and STUDENT OF THE YEAR 2014. !!!!!
With the love and unending support from my beautiful family, the Rizzo's, old friends and new, i was just so proud to finally be able to acknowledge to myself.... I made it! I survived it! I am worthy! I am proud!
If i can say this one final thing. If you are having a bad time, push through it, be patient and the universe will reward you. Megan xxoo
