I had nervously entered the CWIA last month, thinking nothing would result from it when in BC we are surrounded by insane talent. And this morning I had a knot in my stomach hoping to receive the news that I had been selected, and I couldn't believe it when I read "Dragonflight Photography: Best Solo Portrait" It was the only entry I submitted as I didn't think anything would come from entering. I swear I read it at least 3x to make sure I wasn't seeing things and over excited.
I squealed as I saw my name displayed on page and I'm pretty sure the neighbours heard me. And quickly dialed Verlon's cell to scream in his hear "WE WON!" - To win something like this is a career achieving moment, we strive for others to recognize our favourite images and it doesn't happen all the time. I feel so grateful for being selected and to see my name surrounded by other great photographers from BC
