County Fair Photography Exhibition: Results

Entering the San Diego County Fair’s photography exhibition has been a very valuable experience. At first, I was a bit disappointed that only one out of six photos was accepted (the apple-stealing squirrel). However, I am very pleased now that the photo was given the donated “Art of Photography Show Award.”

I don’t know yet what exactly comes with this award, but perhaps it’s credit towards entering a future Art of Photography show. Last year, they accepted 111 photos out of I think 13,000 entries from 67 countries, so a nod from them is very encouraging.

A few days ago, we went to the judges roundtable at the fair, and got some really valuable suggestions. Next week, they have a session with one-on-one critiques from judges. I hope to get some more specific feedback on the images that were not accepted. At any rate, I’ve already started a folder of images I might submit next year!

    Congratulations. Whatever the award is, it is public recognition of your work. And that is a very important incentive toward the elusive goal of achieving perfection in one’s chosen art form. I wish you continued success in your photographic journey. I love your work. Marsha.
