Congratulations to Kelly Tunney Photographer - Finalist in two Telstra Business Women’s Award categories
Kelly Tunney of Bruce has been named as a finalist in two categories of the 2009 Telstra Business Women’s Awards.
“To be named alongside such brilliant women is very exciting” says Ms Tunney, a Canberra local who now runs three photography studios, “our achievements this year have contributed greatly to the success of the studios.”
The awards are now in its 15th year with the Telstra Business Women’s Awards recognising the achievements of women in business of all types and sizes, from up-and-coming young business women to corporate leaders and those working in the not-for-profit sector. The Awards have recognised over 400 business women since their inception in 1995.
Recently, Ms Tunney’s photos also appeared on TEN’s State Focus program and in February 2009 she won several International awards. In December, she secured Jesh de Rox, one of the world’s leading photographers from Canada, to Canberra to train and inspire other local photographers.
“It is this kind of exposure that has seen us start small and grow, and at the same time build the photography industry in Canberra, especially for women” says Ms Tunney.
Ms Tunney, runner-up 2008 and 2009 ACT Australian Institute of Professional Photography wedding photographer of the year, is even in demand on the other side of the world with a wedding booked in Ireland in 2010.
Ms Tunney is an ACT finalist in the Commonwealth Bank Business Owner Award and the Marie Claire Young Business Women’s Award. ACT finalists in all categories are in the running to win the Telstra Business Women’s Award in their category and possibly become the Telstra ACT Business Woman of the Year. The winners will be announced at Parliament House on 13 October 2009.
