Epson/NZIPP Iris Professional Photography Awards 2015 winners announced
There was no shortage of incredible photography entered in, and exhibited at, the 2015 Iris Awards at the Rydges Lakeland Resort in Queenstown. An entire floor of the hotel was filled with displays of Gold-, Silver-, and Bronze-awarded photographs, with more displays spotted on multiple other floors throughout the venue. The ability to get in on the judging action was also available to all of those who were in Queenstown, and also everyone else from all over New Zealand, and overseas, thanks to the live streaming of the judging that was available online.
This year’s NZ Photographer of the Year 2015 was recognized as Tracey Robinson; Robert Piccoli’s image received the Overseas Photographer of the Year 2015 award; the Highest-Scoring-Entry Award 2015 was received by James Phillips for his image, which received a total score of 97; and finally, the Rookie Photographer of the Year 2015 was recognized as Tamara Milldove.
