    Not big, but one of my prints won first place in the Leamington Arts Centre "Anything Goes" photo contest. Sadly, my prints are the only darkroom prints in the entire show. It sure is getting lonely out here.

    Anyway, this couldn't have come at a better time for me. I really needed the encouragement this brings. Happy New Year to me. :smile:

    I'm not sure what to make of that either... but did you notice your print was the one the juror had the most to say about? :smile:
    A belated congratulations to you, Eddie...

    And
    That is SO cool! Given that I'm a real fan of Ilford, I'd be thrilled to pieces to be chosen as their featured photographer.

    Greg, two exhibitions AND a magazine? That's extremely impressive. Congrats to you, also!

    Well done!

    And last, but far from least Congratulations, Tom! That is a lovely way to welcome in a new year. Encouragement should always be.... encouraged! :smile:

    Phew. All caught up on 2011 and into 2012. What a talented bunch you are.

    Two of my carbon transfer prints were accepted in a juried competition of alternative processes for the Centre for Photographic History and Technology - Pacifica Chapter. The show will be held at the Group f/5.6 Gallery in Bellevue, Washington.

    Pretty exciting (for me anyway), one of my images was just awarded a "Peoples Choice" award in the single image competition in B&W Magazine in the "Nude/Body" catagory. Issue is supposed to hit the newstands in a couple of weeks. I just got my copy in the mail yesterday.

    Congrats, Dan. I like it when one of our own gets recognition. Anyplace we can see the image?

    Thanks Eddie. If you have a subscription to B&W, you might already have gotten the latest issue. Otherwise, they told me the magazine is supposed to be out soon. After the magazine comes out, I'll be posting it on my website.

    I'll post here to revive this thread instead of starting a new one. I entered works to be considered for the Westmoreland Art Nationals here in western PA. All of my entries were APUG-acceptable and two got in! Woo-hoo! Here's the link for the show (it starts with the list of accepted artists, but has info about the actual shows) - http://www.artsandheritage.com/TheArts/ArtNationals.aspx

    Both of the ones I got in were lith prints from Holga negs - kinda amusing in some ways. Works entered had to have been created within the last 3 years.

    While not a contest i was asked if i had any photographs that id like to submit for a resturant that wants in on the monthly first friday artwalk. It was going to be a collective show but as things turn out its only my photos. 6 of them were selected out of the 10 i sent. While not a major venue like many of you here have done its the first time for me showing any work outside of apug and facebook.

    I'm terrible at it. :sad: But I do enter art shows and use Facebook to announce any accepted entries. My wife is better in tooting my horn.
