Competitions

I never seem to have much time, what with a bit of IT, a bit of holiday cottage management, and a lot of photography.
Over the past twelve months I have been working towards my AFIAP (Artiste Federation Internationale de art Photographique). I applied for it at the end of 2013 and am currently awaiting the results but I don't see any reason why I shouldn't be awarded it. I have now started working towards my EFIAP (Excellence).

FIAP 2014/063 Switzerland

International Salon of Photography "PHOTO ARTIST 2014" 
I have just been notified that I had twelve out of sixteen entries accepted into the salon.
No overall awards but I think thats a record for me in terms of the number accepted in one Salon.
It was also the last try out for some of my images that had not previously been accepted and I had decided not to use them again. Goes to show that different countries judges like different images.

Open Competition on 15th March 2012
Unable to attend due to flu so no direct feedback but it looks like we have another poor judge with marks ranging between 14-20. With 80% scoring 16 or 17 you can expect inconsistant scoring.
