I thought I should share my experience with you.
How it felt being one of the finalists:)
It was an extremely hectic day & it was filled with nerves!
Sitting in a room filled with 1200 people.
You know that ANY minute now they will announce the category photo blog.
You know that when they do you will start to hyperventilate & and feel a fainting sensation.
As expected - the nerves hit in!
As expected I felt a shortage of breath!
As expected everything went silent!
Suddenly my name appears and everyone starts applauding (as they off course did for the other finalists 2)!
Knowing that if I win this, I have to go on stage and give my speech.
I was a nervous wreck!
You already know that I did not win.
But I was so happy for Kari Kjølseth:)
She is a great photographer!!
But I did get a goody bag - wohooooo - a huge one!
My sister had to take it home with her because it was to big to take with me to the after party at "Fisk&Vilt".
There was a party....
A big one!
So big that I spend two days with headaches & feeling a tad under the weather.
But it was soooooooo worth it!!
Had the best time:)
I won´t bore you with the details... ;)
Thank you SO much for all your support & love!
It really does mean the world to me <3
Thank you Line Dybwad Olsen for contributing with this picture!!
I also did a bit of retouch on a few of my favorites that I posted on Thursday.
