I was very pleased to have two of my photos chosen in the shortlist for the Close Up Photographer of the Year. Getting on the shortlist is always my aim for competitions at the moment as I am still learning my craft. Here is my badge and message:
"Congratulations once more on making the shortlist of Close-up Photographer of the Year. We had over 6,500 entries this year and the standard of entries was genuinely incredible. It was tough selecting the shortlist and agonisingly difficult to squeeze them down to the final 100"
