Just learned that my image, “Low Tide, Vancouver Island”, above, was nominated for “Abstract of the Year” in the 3rd annual Photography Masters Cup, aka, The International Color Awards. Although I did not win, getting the nomination is an accomplishment by itself. There are hundreds of entries, and thousands of images in many categories, so I am quite pleased to get this.
I was also notified by Center in Santa Fe, that my Marking project, entered into the Project Competition and Review Santa Fe portfolio review, made the top 24% of those entered. Again, I did not win any of the top awards, but placing in the top quarter within a group of such highly considered photographers is something positive to take away.
I am number 12 on the waiting list to go to the review, held in June, and I’m hopeful to be eventually included. I think the project is quite close to completion, and being able to show it to the group of reviewers who will be there is a step I want to take at this point. They take around 100 of the top entries. I am on the 50 person wait list, hoping someone has a change of heart.
