  1. Wooooooow!
    That's a great news, sorry I didn't open BLog page sooner!!
    I saw all the winners & nominees' photos, all wonderful and you must be very proud of yourself to be the one of them!! I'm proud of you :-)
    Just one thing, there are a few people with multiple photos, it doesn't sound very natural.

  2. Hi Kumiko san,
    I appreciate your nice comment.
    Although I wasn't one of the winners, but I feel lucky to be in the finalist out of thousands of photos.
    By the way, this is not a free contest, and therefore, the contestants must be very serious about the quality of photos they enter to place any level. My entry fee was something like $30 for 2 photos at discount price. Also this organization is based in London, and they do not limit the number of entries per photographer. More one enters, more entry fee is paid. It may be the reason that they do not limit the number of finalist and winning photos per photographer either. This is something definitely different from those free contest or low cost contest we are normally used to.
    For example, our Texas State Fair Creative Arts Contest has a very low $4 entry fee per photo, but they only allow 2 photos per photographer.

    Thanks again for stopping by. - Nobi
