Yay! I’m delighted to have won the ‘Best Piece of Photojournalism’ Award at the Caribbean Tourism Association’s Journalism Awards 2013. It’s a huge honour!

The awards were announced at World Travel Market in London last night, and I won for a feature I wrote and shot for National Geographic Traveller UK in Antigua & Barbuda.

Above and below are some of the pix. You can read the full feature here.

Enormous thanks to Pat Riddell and the team at National Geographic Traveller UK for commissioning and publishing the piece. It’s a publication I love writing for.

Congrats to fellow National Geo contributor, Alex Dalzell, who won Best Consumer Feature for a piece on St. Vincent titled ‘A Life Less Ordinary’. You can read Alex’s piece online here.
