So happy and excited to have been awarded a Professional Honorable Mention in this year's International Photography Awards, considered to be among the 10 most prestigious awards in the world, this year there were more than 12000 entries from 110 countries. The Honorable Mention is for a project I was commissioned by the Cyprus Department of Antiquities to showcase some of Cyprus's extraordinary archaeological places.

Places of wonder
'Cyprus is situated at the crossroads between three continents. The island’s position allowed the development of a unique culture which evolved from the 10th cent. BC. Having been under the control or influence of Kings, Pharaohs, Emperors, Crusaders, Sultans and many more, it boasts a rich archaeological heritage. Cypriot antiquities grace museums all over the world. Others are anchored on the land where they were brought into being, as sites of international importance. I was commissioned by the Republic of Cyprus’s Department of Antiquities to showcase some of these extraordinary places.'
