In September I pitched a day long picture story to the Globe & Mail on a relatively unknown sport in Canada. Kabaddi is a South-Asian sport that is played on a large circular field and resembles a very physical form of tag. Their was a large competition being held in Abbotsford, which has a high Indian population, so I knew it would be well attended.
One of the highlights of the day (and perhaps the year) was that I was Awarded a ‘Trophy of Honour’ for wanting to photograph the sport and stay all day. I guess the organizers saw my dedication to sticking around all day and felt they needed to promote my 'honour’! I’ll take it
