Cromwell Photographer Strikes Gold

Cromwell Photographer Strikes Gold

14 August, 2014

Cromwell professional photographer Janyne Fletcher has won gold at the at the prestigious national Iris Awards held in Rotorua earlier this month.

The Epson/New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography (NZIPP) Iris Awards attract hundreds of entries from around the country and overseas each year.

The awards are highly contested as they have helped launch and establish many careers.

The striking graphical photograph of Ben Ohau was one of the highest scoring print in the competition.

The print was awarded a coveted Gold Distinction award scoring 95 out of a possible 100 points.

All the entries are judged anonymously over three days by a panel of judges who include some of the most qualified and renowned local and international photographers.

The image earned high praise from distinguished Australian Judge and fine art photography expert, Ian Poole.

Mr Poole said “the graphic interpretation of the landscape made for a cracker of a shot” and went on to say “this is why I enjoy judging. I wait for images like these.”

Janyne says “I am thrilled to be able to present work that is true to my own creative vision and get the judges excited about what they are seeing.

The standard of these awards and professionalism of the judging is very high so it means a huge amount to me to receive a gold distinction award.”

Janyne had other successes at the awards including a silver and five bronze awards which have earned her the distinction of “Fellow of the NZIPP”. NZIPP distinction are achieved through accumulating winning entries in the Iris Awards.

“The awards have given me an opportunity to push my creative boundaries, and to see how my work is judged against the best of the industry,” said Janyne.
