Paul received 3 Silver Awards in the 2013 Australian Professional Photography Awards in Melbourne.
He received 2 Silver Awards in the Landscape category, and one in the Illustrative category.
"It's always a nail-biting experience, waiting for your print to come up before the judges and watching the scores to be displayed. Then if you win an award you just can't stop smiling. This year's event was pretty big and pretty special as it was the 50th anniversary of the AIPP. There were many, many quality entries in every category, so being up there with the best is a very special experience indeed!"
The 2013 Landscape Photographer of the Year award, and Professional Photographer of the Year award was won by Tony Hewitt. Paul said, "He is an inspiration and a great mentor. A well-deserved honour for a gentleman and a scholar."
