Yesterday, the International Photography Award winners were announced, with Daniel taking second place in the aerial category and an honorable mention in the environmental and “deeper perspective” categories.
A series of five photos from Daniel’s assignment with the ILCP Yucatan Peninsula last October won second place in the Aerial photography. These photos were shot from flights provided via the assistance of Lighthawk, an organization that helps connect pilots and planes with environmental conservationists. The photos (and subsequent award) simply wouldn’t exist without Lighthawk’s generosity.
Additionally, honorable mention was granted in both the Editorial-Environmental and Editorial-Deeper Perspective categories to a series of photos Daniel shot in the Democratic Republic of the Congo last spring, documenting deforestation for the Prince’s Rainforests Project (the photos are exactly the same between both entries, so you can just look at it once, if you want).
