Unfortunately, for my sister she did not claim the prize. Though not to worry; as much as it is a shame your own willpower is what will get you what you want in the end.
My sister is a strong person. As much as this prize could have really given her a boost, it doesn’t mean that everything is over if she doesn’t win it. In my eyes, she will always be the most hard-working, inspiring and awesomest sister i have. I’m sure she will become a great and recognised photographer. 🙂
