Today the San Diego County Fair emailed the results of the first (online) round of judging of the 2013 photo competition. I’m very happy that 5 out of 12 photos I submitted were accepted. I think the previous two years of gaining experience and listening to judges’ roundtables and going to one-on-one critiques are beginning to pay off.
Now I’m going to be busy getting five photos printed, mounted and matted by May 15. In addition, last weekend we attended the Photo Video West expo, and I won 10 free submissions to the Art of Photography show, which are due May 18. To make matters worse, I’m out of town all of next week…
OK, here are the five accepted photos after the first round of judging. You’ll recognize two of them, “Library” and “Big Ears”, as my 1x publications. It’s a nice confirmation to have the same images appreciated by independent groups of curators or judges.
