I am pleased to say that I got an entry into the KCPA Annual Photographic exhibition this year on merit. Unlike in previous years, this year everybody that entered was guaranteed to get at least one submitted entry into the exhibition. Prints are judged out of 15 (3 judges awarding between 2 and 5 each) and normally a score of 12 will secure a place in the exhibition but this year nearly half of the prints scoring 12 did not make it in.
Anybody that did not get a print in for a score of 12 or above had their highest scoring print entered. Thankfully a print of mine got a 12 and did not get pulled out of the final selection.
Personally I am not sure whether this year's approach is a good on or not. The exhibition does represent members of all abilities across the county but at the same time I feel it should have been the best entries. Only time will tell.
Anyway the exhibition is on in the Maidstone Museum from the 24th March through to June 10th. Why not pop down there if you are reasonably local and see if you can find my accepted entry. A quick look around the exhibition will explain to my friends that tell me I am a good photographer why I tend to be a bit more humble about my abilities!
