Three years ago I founded my company aabz-imaging with a postcard series featuring my photos from Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia. A lot of progress has been happening since and I am pleased to announce that my 2010 postcard series scored a Bronze Award at this years Printing Industries Craftsmanship Awards of Western Australia (PICA)!
Although this is mainly an award for the printing industry and a huge credit & thank you goes to my printer, I am very happy for two reasons:
First, postcards is one of the toughest categories to enter, because it receives so many submissions.
Second, the design and all colour processing, conversion and pre-press work has been done by myself as well as all featured photographs. I believe the choice of design, motives and colour accuracy (underwater blue tones are very hard to print in CMYK) played an important role in the judging process.
