A Brandon Sun photographer has been nominated for two 2013 national awards.
The News Photographers Association of Canada yesterday announced the nominations in the eighth annual National Pictures of the Year awards competition.
Tim Smith is nominated in the pictorial category and for the prestigious photojournalist of the year award.
Smith, who joined the Brandon Sun in October 2007, has previously been a finalist in the competition and finished first in three categories.
"I’m excited for Tim, as he works very hard on his craft," Sun managing editor James O’Connor said last night. "This is also an honour for the Brandon Sun, as it shows the level of professionalism we strive for in our photography department and throughout the newsroom."
The Sun will have a more detailed story on Smith’s nominations and information about another honour received this year that will see him travel to New York City for a portfolio evaluation by some of the top editors in the world.
The winners of the News Photographers Association of Canada honours will be announced during the 2013 National Pictures of the Year Awards Gala on May 24 in Vancouver.
