Arts Journalism Awards

Thanks to the National Arts Festival & Business and Arts South Africa (BASA) I’ve been awarded a Silver Arts Journalism Award in Photography as well as a special silver merit award for my contribution to theatre.  Below are a few of the images from my submission.

While the newspapers are struggling to keep photographers employed and closing down their Arts pages, it is heartening to see this glimmer of support for Arts Journalists. The awards are based on arts journalism pieces published during 2013.

The  Award winners were announced on the 6th of July at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown.
