2010 World Press Photo Contest - First Prize Portraits Singles

What a surreal day... 11 missed calls , 5 voice-mails and 4 text messages all in 20 mins...

"Hey Laura, just to say congrats on 1st prize Portraits Singles in the World Press Photo Contest ... lets have a beer soon, well done"

The cool and calm voice exclaims....???? What? My reaction...? ..like a 5 year old unwrapping the Mr Frosty at Christmas they've nagged for all year ...

I'm truly honored and genuinely shocked. I always look forward to seeing the award and have a stack of annuals on my bookshelf..

Congratulations to all the winners I feel honored to be among them..thanks to everyone for your kind words of congratulations and lets all celebrate soon! Thanks to Graham for being so open and honest and letting the moment occur x
