Last week I attended the Nordic Light International Photo Festival in the beautiful coastal town of Kristiansund. A part of the festival was the biannual Exposure Photo Competition (“Eksponering” in Norwegian) of the Institutional Photographers Association (IFF).

I’m very happy to announce that I won the Medical Photography category with the photo above, titled “Botox Injection in Colostoma”.

You can see all the winners and honourable mentions from Exposure 2011 here.
