Pink Petal Perfection... dew kissed... is the second of five images from the round one portfolio entered in the Photography Slam competition run by Photoworks (a photography resource and education center based at Glen Echo Park) as part of FotoWeek DC 2010 (an annual photography event in Washington, DC).
I'm quite excited about having taken second place in a field of 40 photographers entered and will be posting the images here over the next few days. The prize for the top three entrants is participation in a gallery show at Photoworks during Foto Week 2011 (about one year from now).
If you have ever been to a poetry slam competition, you might guess that a Photography Slam is modeled after a poetry slam... The forty entrants were judged in 4 rounds of 10 photographers each with the top three in each round advancing to the final round. Audience participation was encouraged as well as bribing of the three judges (tongue in cheek). It was an exciting evening and I was thrilled to do so well.
