The Illustrative Category at the NZIPP Iris Awards is all about story telling. So not only does an image need to be very technically strong and creative but it needs to tell a story. My 2015 portfolio in the Illustrative category did well with two bronzes and a coveted gold award. My very popular road signs print is now an award winner. I am looking forward to telling the full story of my bronze award winning phone box, look out for more news on this later in the year. I am soon going to write a separate blog post about the gold award winning print that was my tribute to the World War I soldiers from rural NZ.
