ETWildlifephotography.com: The News Stand
I entered my photographs in the Monroe County Fair, where I live, St. Clair County Fair, the neighboring county, and the Springfield & DuQuoin State Fairs.
Since each fair has a great variety of categories to enter in the photography department I will not list each individual photo that was entered, I have, however, included Heron's World, which recieved "Best of Show" at the Duquoin State Fair.
For each of the fairs I chose different photos to be entered. There were just a couple of photos that I put into each of the three fairs to see how the same photo would fare in the different locations with different judges.
I like to use different photos for each of the fairs for two reasons; I like to get a good variety of my work out there and because I rarely print a large amount of my photos for myself, this gives me a chance to have prints of my best work for the current year all together in one large binder that I put together with the ribbons, awards etc. that each photo has earned, not only from the fairs but the on-line contests, magazines etc.
And lastly I took the money that I had won from the 2003 fairs and treated myself to a Nixvue Vista (Visual Storage Album), A 30 gig digital wallet that I absolutely love!
