A couple of months, I submitted my project Za Granica // Beyond the Border to IPA Photo Awards in the category Non-Professional Documentary Photobook.
I’m ecstatic to say that my book has won first place in the category which feels amazing!
I think this is an important lesson for me as well – not to doubt my abilities, and keep entering competitions even though there’s a part of me that may think nothing will come of it. A lot of the time this may be the case, but if your work is seen by the right people – it can have a really happy ending!
