I received an email Jan 20/2012 from Roy Ramsay, Editor-in-Chief of Outdoor Photography Canada, stating that my photo, "A Nightmare in Ice", had been unanimously selected as the over-all, Grand Prize winner! It was quite a shocker to me because I'd completely forgotten about the contest( I'd submitted the photo for the February 2011 contest ).
As the winner I will receiver a "Best of Year" certificate, a 16x20 gallery wrap of the image, and a placement on Darwin Wiggett's winter workshop to be held at the Aurum Lodge just outside of Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies!
It looks like I'll be attending the tour starting Feb 8th. 4 days spent immersed in all things photography in a rustic lodge on the shore of Abraham Lake, I can't wait. Hopefully I'll get plenty of great shots(fingers crossed).
Also, on a side note, my photo "Storm on the Lake", has been short-listed by Canadian Geographic for publication in a special upcoming magazine collecting the best photos of Canada¹s extraordinary weather. Keep your eyes open!
