A real Feather in our Cap or maybe a Hackle in our Tam ‘o’ Shanter
World-wide recognition in pictures
Small town in Australia makes it on the international media
A bit of extra worldwide publicity for Brigadoon
End of last year I was asked by the Expat Channel of the Telegraph in London, who were putting together a picture gallery of Scottish / Celtic games events around the world to supply some hi-res photos of Brigadoon.
Using material supplied by photographers who so readily give their time for free to document every facet of Brigadoon a varied selection of photographs were supplied to Expat Telegraph (UK)
Out of the 12 photographs shown in the Expat Telegraph we feature in 3 of the 12, numbers 4, 5, & 6
The only issue is they have given credit to the wrong person for photo’s 4 & 5, the person who took these photos was Aurora Jane Photography from Bowral
I apologised unreservedly to Aurora Jane for the error, I have contacted her and explained the situation and she has gracefully accepted my apology
I am assuming the error occurred because the zip file I sent had the name Cliff Dorian on it, one of his photographs was included and they have gone to print using the zip file name, but still managed to credit Roy Truscott for number 6
Apart from that isn’t it nice to recognised in the World-wide media
