Erotic Review Reader's Choice Winner

Was just a little bit floored to see the news that my shot of Spilt Sugar won the Reader's Prize in the Erotic Review Photographer of the Year contest. With over 400,000 votes cast, my thanks to all of you who took the time to support me in the voting! Congratulations to Frédéric Fontenoy for winning the judge's prize, and to all the other winners.

Special thanks to Spilt Sugar for being such an expressive model, and for not being afraid to be a little risqué for the shot. She's an excellent photographer in her own right as well... check out her blog here. Wish I could karaoke with you this weekend!

I managed to be a runner-up in last year's Reader's Choice voting, so I'm excited to have improved upon that this time. This is especially welcome news after a couple recent disappointments. I do think I'll have more good news to share soon (fingers crossed) so stay tuned!

Congratulations. I looked at your competition. While they had a few great photos, your is the only one that had a feeling of space, time, and truth. Artistic, beautiful, and sensual. Well deserved.

Holy moly! That's awesome! Sweet prizes too! £1,000.00, feature spread in the mag and included in the Competition Book!
How do i get a copy of the mag when it comes out?
Congrats!

SS, the Reader's Prize is £250, and I think only the winning image will be in the magazine, although there may be several in the book when it comes out. (They used 4 of mine in the 2008 book.) I'll get you a copy of the magazine, and may order a few extra to offer to interested readers so they don't have to pay overseas shipping.
