Images that have first appeared on this site have been bestowed with recognition, awards and prizes elsewhere. Read about them here!
This weekend, two Travelblog members received different (and pleasant) surprises for images that were first published on this site.
Last night, I was informed that the image appearing below from a 2010 blog earned me a US$500 voucher to be spent on a safari by the hosts of the competition - Gamewatchers Safari and Porini Camp. First time I have ever won a prize in an international photo competition - very pleased!
Now just need to decide what safari to choose - a walking one in central Kenya escorted by camels perhaps?
Early this morning, our resident portrait maestro, Dancing Dave
was informed that one of his images was chosen for the Celebrate African Children Project
photographic competition as a Top Ten image!
This touching image will now appear in a book of the same name - congratulations to you Dave!
Warmest congratulations to you both :-) :-) :-)
We've always known your photos were fab--how great that the larger world can enjoy your works too. Good show to you both!
Fantastic! Congrats to Shane and Dave for such great photos!

Great stuff and well done 😊
You both take some great shots!
We will have to appoint Shane as our resident safari picture maestro and The Dancing One as our resident portrait pic maester 😉
Shane, what kind of camera do you use? I know Dave manages to somehow conjure up his wonderful shots without the use of a DSLR.

Mine is a Nikon D300, and the lens I used for that photo was a Nikon 18-200 set at 105. That is now my back-up lens, as the Nikon 16-85 takes far sharper photos and it is currently my preferred lens.
Hey this is fantastic!! Congratulations to Dave and Shane.
Now the rest of the world knows what super photographers you are.
Glad you've received the recognition!!
Continue on with the great photos.
Beautiful photos! Congratulations fellow bloggers!

1st place: Contest by Jagielonski University in Krakow: "NEOAzja - everyday life in the Far East"

of course these were local competitions with small prices but I am very proud of his recognition:-)
Thanks for sharing the news and well deserved!
I just wanted to share that Tomek won another photo competition - The Telegraph UK Big Picture Photo Contest+Nikon camera...I am really proud...maybe his dream can come true and he can be a professional ha?
