Young Garden Photographer of the Year

Tue Apr 27, 2010, 7:07 PM


Hello all!

I just received very exciting news. I was judged Young Garden Photographer of the Year in the www.igpoty.com :) I won with my "Snowfall in Eden", which is probably one of my favorites of mine. I will have the photo on display at the Kew Gardens, Lacock Abbey, and Wakehurst Place in London! I will also be receiving a quality photo printer, which should be great! I would no longer always have to go through my printer.
Thanks everyone! Without dA and you guys I would never have gotten into photography :)
Matt

A fine image :nod:
They should fly you in for the opening.
You would enjoy the schmoozing.
(still too young for the champagne celebration though :( )

Oh, that'd be great =p I would go for the opening on my own terms, but I really can't miss much school :(

I understand...
but, perhaps some local competition
or a juried exhibition?
Or, you could approach a gallery -
even if they say 'no' now,
don't despair.
You are making a contact
(someone you can get in touch with again).
Places such as galleries like artists
who continually show them their work.
It makes them think the artist is serious
rather than just a hobbyist who dabbles.
They become more and more "comfortable" with you.
Additionally, it allows them to see your work mature over time.

That would be a good idea, thank you :) I have a portfolio book/binder that I will be filling soon so I can go around to galleries with it :) Thanks for the tips.
