This morning I received an email regarding a competition I entered recently. It’s always nice when an emails starts with…
Congratulations! We are extremely pleased to inform you that one or more of your entries have been chosen for inclusion in the 12th Annual “Botanicals”Chris Hoffman,
Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery
The exhibition didn’t open for another 17 hours so I had no idea which piece had been accepted or whether I had managed to achieve any award…
Tonight I logged in to find that the gallery (Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery) received 784 entries from 22 different countries from around the world.
The exhibition was divided into three media categories. Painting & Other Media, Photography & Digital and 3 Dimensional Art categories. In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) best entries comprised from all the media categories.
The gallery also included Special Merit awards and Special Recognition awards for outstanding art. Many of the artists in either of these groups could have easily been included in the upper tier of our winners, as their art was also exceptional.
So I started to look through each of the images until I came across Himalayan Poppies listed under the Special Recognition section…such a nice way to end the week
