A quick update, last month I received two Silver Awards and a bronze for the images I submitted in the Guild of Photographers monthly photo competition. I have gained steady bronzes over the last few months but am thrilled to have reached the Silver level again. Two in one month, bonus!
As some of you may know, I took the challenge last year and managed to gain a ‘Photographers Bar’. Rather pleased.
Every month entries are assessed and given points by a full panel of highly respected judges. At the end of the year, the points are added up to give you your final score.
This can take up hours of my time, choosing and editing images ready to be judged, not an easy task! This however continues to push me as a Photographer to continue to learn my craft. There are thousands of entries per month and only about 15-40 Silver and Golds are awarded on average monthly. So a great achievement to be amongst one one them.
