Congratulations are in order to Simon who has recently had some outstanding success in international competitions under the Clonakilty Camera Club banner.
Firstly, Simon had four acceptances in the 3rd International Exhibition of Photography “Donegal 2017” one of which entitled “Bread Sellers, Marrakech”, won an Honourable Mention.
Simon’s other three photos are in the gallery below.
You can find the list of authors here and the acceptances and awards here.
The only other successful photographer from Ireland was Michelle Walsh from Boyle Camera Club.
Secondly, Simon had a photo accepted into the UNICEF Next Generation Art Project by a panel of professional art curators in New York. All selected artworks – from artists around the world – will be auctioned at an art gallery in Los Angeles on March 11. All proceeds donated to UNICEF. His selected photo was, “Ogunquit Beach.”
A fantastic achievement on Simon’s part. Congratulations to him and let’s hope that there’s lots of interest in buying this image and raising funds for UNICEF. One would imagine given the current political climate in the USA that this photo would generate a bidding war!
