I’m kind of lucky this last 2 weeks because today I received results for 9th Holland International Image Circuit Competition and 3 more of my pictures received an Acceptance Level meaning they’re part of the 25% best pictures proposed and sent for this competition.
3 of these pictures have been taken with my Ricoh GR: Mini Travel when I was in Meknes in June 2013 for the 4th Art Festival and Wide Perspective when I was hiking in the Pyrenees mountains in August 2013.
The third one, Desertic Road has been taken with my Pentax K3 coupled with a Pentax FA 77mm f1.8 limited when I was in Hurghada, Egypt in December for my “Regards Croisés” exhibition with my friend Ahmed Shebita.
I can say now that I know what kind of pictures juries are expecting of competitors. I passed this last 6 months to send many differents pictures of all kinds so as to identify the ones with the best chance to win an award.
In conclusion, I’d say it’s a (very) good start and I’m proud of that, but I must now to convert the try by winning an award before the end of this year!
2014 is going to be a very exciting year! So stay tuned!
