I'm delighted to share the news that Day 516 is a finalist for Best Photo Blog at the Irish Blog Awards.
Thanks sincerely to anyone who nominated or voted for me. I hoped, but never expected, to make it to the final shortlist and am absolutely delighted. Thank you to Damien Mulley and Team Blog Awards who put a terrific amount of effort into this event. And thank you to pix.ie who sponsor the category.
The other nominees for best photo blog are:
Nathalie has a real delicate touch when it comes to portrait photography; the work on her blog is personal and evocative.
Ronan's work is expertly accomplished. In companion to strong images he often deconstructs the production process so that we can all learn from his approach.
John Smyth is a master of skies, whether overcast, burning red, shining blue, or hiding in darkness. Each entry on his blog has a custom background colour to complement and enhance the image.
Red Mum has been blogging strongly for years. Her photos always capture and emphasise mood beautifully, whether at events like a parade or a motor-race, or on a quiet deserted beach.
The 2010 Blog Awards are on Saturday 27th March at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Galway at 7.00pm sharp.
Tickets, priced at a very reasonable €15, are available to buy online. I wish I could be there. All the best to everyone involved.
UPDATE 27 March: Congratulations to Red Mum who brought home the blogging bacon: )
