As a documentary family photographer, nothing is better than being able to capture "the" real life.
The purpose of this competition is seeking to celebrate and to recognize the very best documentary family photographers worldwide. It is inspiring to compete with hundreds of amazing authentic storytellers around the world and go up against thousands of photographs.
I was also nominated to be one of the finalists for the "Photo Series" category with the photos I took of one of my students at table tennis training. These photos highlight the photojournalist photography style and art of authentic storytelling.
It is definitely one of the highest awards any documentary photographer can receive.
