Congratulations to Liron Gertsman for winning Audubon’s Photo Awards' Grand Prize!

Liron Gertsman a graduate of my young birder program and friend has won the Grand Prize for the 2023 Audubon Photography Awards I was on the judging panel for. Judging is completely blind so when I found out Liron won the grand prize and professional honourable mention I was beyond thrilled and couldn’t be more proud of him!

Congrats to all the award winners and honourable mentions. It is a tough contest to judge each year with such incredible submissions.

You can see a full list of the winners HERE

The top 100 will be posted HERE on June 28th.

Liron did a couple interviews with CBC you can check it them out and listen to them HERE and HERE as well. He discusses why common birds like Rock Pigeons are worthy of our appreciation.
