CAROLINE NADER AUSTRALIAN PHOTOGRAPHER RECEIVES HONOURABLE MENTION IN INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS

CAROLINE NADER AUSTRALIAN PHOTOGRAPHER RECEIVES HONOURABLE MENTION IN INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS

Sydney artist Caroline Nader was awarded an Honourable Mention in the International Photography Awards (IPA) 2005 Competition.

Los Angeles, California, 2005 - Caroline's photos in the 'Architecture in non-professional' category, won her an Honourable Mention for her series of images titled "In Search of a Holy Space, Spain." The 2005 IPA Competition drew an avalanche of images from around the world - 16,648 entries and across 32 countries.

The outpouring of these thousands of photographs from cities, towns and small villages continues to prove the global power and presence of the still image. Susan Baraz, one of the competition judges, said: "as one of the IPA judges, I was overwhelmed by the incredible talent displayed by all who entered."

About Caroline Nader

Caroline was born in Lebanon, and spent her early childhood in Nigeria and England, before settling in Australia at the age of eight. It seems that travelling was always in her blood.

Although titled "In Search of a Holy Space", it was Caroline's love of football that originally took her to Europe. "I guess that's the joy of travelling, you find something special that you never originally sought," she said.

The legendary Santiago de Compostela provided the perfect photographic setting. "Places of worship have a certain magic, a raw energy. People's fears, hopes and dreams are captured within a holy space."

Are there any more Spanish adventures in the future? "Seville is a dream, the blending of Spanish, Arabic and Northern African cultures."

Currently Caroline is the Creative

Director at Etcom, a specialised multicultural communications agency. Etcom is part of the Worldwide WPP Group as well as the STW Group in Australia.

About Santiago de Compostela, Spain

Since the 12th century, thousands of pilgrims have completed the "Camino de Santiago". The final destination is the cathedral containing the scared relics of the apostle St. James. Santiago is the second largest Catholic Pilgrimage centre after Rome.
