A few Month ago, in March 2021, I entered a total of 10 Fotos into a Photography Contest hosted by the Harz National Park.
Two Years ago, I had already participated and nothing resulted from it, and that is what I had anticipated to happen this Time around as well.
I had only participated in two out of four Categories, those being Landscapes and WaldWandel, or ‘The ever changing Forest’.
While I had entered the maximum of Fotos per Category, five each, I was very much sure that nothing Mitch would come from it again.
The last Time around, there were about 135 Participants and about 1150 Fotos in Competition, and I was sure those Numbers would not change much this Year.
A few Days ago, I then got an Email from the Contest Jury. And just as I had anticipated, the number of both Entries and Participants had not changed much. I though that all of it was for nothing again.
I could not have been more wrong. One of my Fotos actually got selected to be exhibited in the WaldWandel Category. It was also the one Foto I had given the lowest Chance of Success. Maybe Photographers really are their own worst Critics sometimes.
Anyhow, my Foto got selected, and I am really happy about that. There even still is a Chance to Win the whole Category, and maybe even to have my Foto included in next Years Calendar. That would be cool.
I have no Idea how many Fotos got selected for exhibition though.
As I do not know anything else yet though, I will not actually show you my selected Foto. Maybe I will do that later on.
Still, it is kinda exiting to probably get exhibited in an Exhibition, should the current Situation allow it.
