One of the photos I submitted to the Art Show International Figurative Art competition has received an Honorable Mention!
That's the good news. The caveat is that "Out of several hundred contestants, 273 artists from 31 countries won in one of six prize categories." That includes one first prize, two runners-up, three merit prizes, 72 talent prizes, 116 honorable mentions, and 75 finalist awards. So my honorable mention could be as good as 79th place, or as bad as 188th, out of an unknown number of applicants.
Oh well. I get an online exhibition of my image, among 272 others! And a digital badge! Woo hoo...
