2016 International Photography Awards. / by Mark Fulinara

Exciting news!  I just found out that I won 3rd place in the Winter Sports category (non-professional of course) for the International Photography Awards for my "Sled Dog Hotel" photo, and three honorable mentions for some of my kickboxing shots.

Ernest Hemingway once said that you can't call yourself an elephant hunter until after your 50th kill.  Winning a second photography award makes me feel a little bit less like the first award was a fluke, but still 48 awards away from Papa Hemingway's approval.
