Every year the News Photographers Association of Canada (of which I am a member) holds a monthly ‘clip contest’ for it’s members. Each month winning photos are awarded points in six categories and at the end of the year the points are added up – the photographer with the most points at the end of the year is the NPAC Photographer of the Year. The 2013 results are in and I placed a respectable 8th overall. Congratulations to my friends Mark Blinch and Steve Russell for placing first a second (separated by only 30 points! Here are my winning images.
