Max, can you please post the below on our platforms. You can word it however it works for you. Please include congratulations from Blue Ridge Pride and watch for more meaningful work to be produced with Lauren and BRP in 2022
Lauren Merrell Photography 📸 I’ve been holding on to this since Thursday night trying to find the right words to say. Basically, I’m floored. Thursday night I came home & checked my email at the end of the day… I received this: “Dear Lauren Merrell, It is my great pleasure to inform you that your work has been awarded an Honorable Mention in the 2021 edition of the International Photography Awards - Congratulations! “ For those of you who aren’t aware of the International Photography awards or the Lucie awards…. It’s basically the academy awards for photography. They receive 100’s of thousands of submissions & some from some of the top photographers in the world. It’s an incredible honor to be recognized by this organization for any piece of work… but for me this means so much more; because it wasn’t just for a piece of work I did in fashion or food… it was for the @strengthinprideproject . For those of you who know me, you know how incredibly personal this project is for me. It started off as a self portrait idea & grew into a community of incredible people here in Asheville coming together to create change & smash the stigmas associated with the LGBTQ+ community. To say I am honored is an understatement. To have this board recognize & validate this project & it’s meaning in the deeper perspective category is simply my biggest dream come true. I want to thank every single person who saw this vision & believed in it from the beginning.
