I've been moderately successful at applying to some of the big online photo contests. It's hard to break through to the top-tier, top-three award level, but it's still an achievement to receive an Honorable Mention.
The latest is at the Monovisions Photography Awards, with an Honorable Mention for my series "Tatoosh Dreams" featuring Bunny Luna on Pinnacle Peak and vicinity in July 2019. I won another Honorable Mention two years ago with my "Three Graces" series, too.
Here's the new series that took honors, and you can see it in context with the other winners on the Monovisions website:
"Tatoosh Dreams," Bunny Luna, Tatoosh Range, July 2019
This remains one of the most epic photo shoots I've ever done.
