34 International Exhibition acceptances this week!
09th October 2014 - 0 comments
It's been quite amazing. I entered the Swansea Salon of Photography and the Danube Rtanji Circuit a couple of weeks ago and all of their results came out in the past few days. I got 7 acceptances from Swansea (from a possible 16) and 27 from the circuit of five salons in Danube Rtanji (from a possible 12 x 5 = 60). A circuit takes the same images which are seen and assessed by different sets of judges for each club in that circuit. Getting so many acceptances together definitely gives you a 'feel good factor'.

Here are all of the images that were accepted in Danube-Rtanji 2014, all but one were accepted in several salons in the circuit. 'Backstroke Break Through' and 'Red Limestone Tsingy' were accepted in all 5 salons of the circuit.
