Best Photographer 2014? Wow!

I got really surprised today when Bock McMillan sent me an Oscar-like award in Second Life – and even more surprises when I read its inscription: “Best Photographer – 2014”. I didn’t know I was running, so it was really a great honor to find out at once that I was being considered for the prize and that I actually won it. Also, it is a privilege to share the title of “Best Photographer” with Nikolai Warden, who takes amazing shots.

Prize: Best Photographer 2014
Prize: Best Photographer 2014
Ricco and Randy
“Things we do at home”: Randy and Ricco

I have always considered my photos to be mainly illustrations for my blog posts. However, I have learned a few tricks since I started this blog, what allowed me to become a bit more daring and take some pics not related to what I write here.

As far as I could understand, the jurors for the prize were Bock and his partner, Tomais Ashdene. Both are my friends, and one can say they are biased. Still, they know at least a dozen photographers, I’m sure, and it’s a great honor to find out that they seem to really like my pictures.

The prizes are given to other categories too, such as “Best Designer”, “Best DJ” and “Best Pose Maker”, to name a few. For the complete list, please visit Bock’s post announcing the winners.
