Our Fall Salon (image competition) was held on September 22nd. Thank you to all who entered as we know how nervous we all get when entering. And Congratulations to all who merited and those who placed! Please see the list of our winners from each category below and congratulate them next time you see them!
This salon, we had four esteemed judges who spent the afternoon judging all the images and then during the meeting, discussed the score and every image that was entered. We’ve received great feedback from our Members on this method because it provides so much more education than just watching and listening to the judges score.
We’d like to thank Joe & Mary Jean Campanellie from Palm Coast, Pepito from Tampa, and our very own Susan Michael for judging all the prints for us.
We had a great response with the rotating screen that our Salon Chairman MJ set up with lots of ooooohs and ahhhhhhs. Also, he has yet another surprise for our salon next year!
There were 60 prints entered of which 28 of the images merited. We had 3 people that entered for the first time, and Keith Bartholomew was one of the people. He Placed 3 times and had a Best of Show. That was awesome for a first timer! Congratulations, Keith!
