cinemascapes - first place book (Paris PX3)

I don't a) remember entering this competition or b) actually having or sending in a book (other than an old blurb promo). But I'll take it. This silly "stock" press release is a little misleading though. I was awarded first place Book in a sub category (fine art - other), not overall 1st place Book. That was given to Erwin Olaf, who also won the whole shebang as Photographer of the year. Kudos to him. Love his work.
