Recently, I submitted two of my photographs for a yearly photo competition done by NHPPA. First time I ever submitted anything for competition of any sorts. Anyhow, long story short, it was a fantastic experience and to top it off I was awarded three ribbons. Both images scored high and therefore merited and one of them received an additional Judges choice award only given to 7 images out of 180 images submitted for competition. I couldn't be more pleased and it gave me the extra boost of confidence I needed. Already cooking up ideas for photographs to submit for next year.
