IPA 2016 – INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS
PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR ARCHITECTURE PROFESSIONAL
I’m hugely happy to have received the highest distinction for architecture photography at the IPA 2016, where I was awarded Architecture Photographer of the Year, for the Professional category.
IPA, International Photography Awards, is the most prestigious fine art photography competition in the world and this makes my joy even bigger. The images were chosen among tens of thousands of photographs submitted from 162 countries.
With this title, I will be a finalist for the overall title of the IPA Photographer of the Year that will be announced on October 23rd in the awarding ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York. Fingers crossed for that!
It is the second time I am a finalist in a major photography competition, after the SWPA World Photography Awards in 2012, where I was in the Top 10 shortlist in the final, and I can say now I’m even more excited about it.
My series Urban Saga has received 1st PRIZE – GOLD and 2nd PRIZE – SILVER, and was chosen 1st PLACE Country Pick for Greece in all categories where it participated.
Manhattan Blues, Rooftop Stories I and Waves of Imagination have received a total of 10 HONORABLE MENTIONS in different categories. You can find some of these images as limited edition prints at Rotella Gallery in SoHo New York.
During the past years, my photography was awarded more than 85 times, with more than 20 GOLD, SILVER and BRONZE medals and this is a very precious reward for the passion I put in everything I do in photography.
There is nothing like being recognized for doing what you love and I am over the moon and so grateful that the appraisal is at such a high level. It adds even more meaning to what I do and gives me motivation to do it even better in the future. Big thanks to everyone who has supported me and congratulations to all the other winners!

Next week I will be traveling to for my (en)Visionography workshop so I will not be able to attend the awarding ceremony at the Carnegie Hall in New York which is overlapping with the workshop. But I hope for the best and I’d be happy if you kept your fingers crossed for me on October 23rd.
I’m very much looking forward to meeting my students and I will celebrate this great award with them making photography in one of the most inspiring and amazing cities of the world.

You can subscribe to my blog to be sure you will receive the announcement as soon as I make it, since my workshops tend to sell out very quickly.
