As we are getting closer to the deadline for the contest, I thought I would throw together this video.
Up to this point, I haven't received very many entries, which means the contest is WIDE OPEN. (As in, it will be very easy to win it it stays that way). If you know of anyone who might be interested in the contest, please let them know about it. I think it is a great opportunity, especially beginning and intermediate photographers to get recognition and encouragement for their developing skills. Many of last years winners mentioned this to me, and it is one of the main reasons I like to put this on: To get people excited about photography. Another thing, is the more participants we have each year, the easier it is for me to get sponsors who will support it and donate prizes. Last year we had 250 entries, which is great, but it isn't enough to get the big sponsorships. :)
