08/23/2009: "Photographers - We Called and You Responded!"
To The Editor:
Thanks to all who entered such wonderful photographs at the County Fair, The Photography Exhibit was a great success this year. People were talking - all over the islands. The quality of the images was very high and everyone who came by enjoyed the show immensely.
The Competitive section was also a hit, with 50 photographers submitting 120 images. Such wonderful images that our judges had a hard time selecting blue and red ribbons. The quality was so high that they gave out a number of Honorable Mention ribbons to acknowledge the good work.
The images in the Open section were equally outstanding. As I walked the exhibit during the week I realized that there were pictures that should have received a ribbon but didn't. I apologize for that and next year we will make changes to the judging process to be sure that everyone who deserves a ribbon gets one.
Start thinking about your entry for 2010, we look forward to hanging it.
