My First Big Win in Photography : The Girl
I was so very overwhelmed on September 13, 2018 when I found out I won a big photo competition & would be representing my country of Canada 🍁. This most beautiful encounter with a female Pronghorn that I call "The Girl ." Here is the letter I received :
Hello Greg! This email is sent with congratulations and gratitude for your participation in the Biodiversity Photo Contest held in the month of August. We at the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) are pleased to inform you that your photo was selected to appear in our book, “Celebrating 25 Years of Biological Diversity”, under the country profile of Canada. As an added bonus, your photo will also be a part of an exhibit taking place at the United Nations General Assembly in New York this September. The exhibit will highlight case studies of biodiversity successes and photography from 30 different countries and your photo, its description, and your credit will be included with the Canada as well. The event will also be a celebration of 25 years of the CBD, and will be attended by UN representatives and delegates from all around the world! We would like to thank you again for participating in the contest, and allowing us the opportunity to see some fantastic, personal imagery of biodiversity from around the world. It was truly amazing to get so many fantastic submissions, your photo included.
