#186 – Runner Up

Time to blow my own trumpet again – after 5 years of entering, I have finally managed to place in the Brownedge Arts Festival, coming second with my Duke Of Lancaster photo! I also took two commendeds for Tornado and Dinorwic, thus giving a 100% record for my print entries! I’ve not seen the other entries this year, but the better ones are normally of a very good standard.

Interestingly enough I had high hopes for my entries last year, where I entered 5 prints that had all come first or second in camera club competitions as well as doing well in external competitions – and got nothing whatsoever.

So I collect my cheque for £100 next week at the opening ceremony, which I suppose covers the cost of entry, mountboard and paper, as well as the large canvas I had made of the image a while back!

They say good news comes in three’s, so following on from the RPS distinction, I feel I’m on a roll – better buy some lottery tickets I think!
