In Mid-March I received a very welcome note from Jeanne Clayton who was my photo editor at Southern Living. After I left Jeanne, now Director of Photography, was entering staff-produced photographs in the 30th American Photography competition and she entered one of mine. There were 9644 photo submitted by 873 photographers, publications, schools and agencies. Only 357 were selected to appear in the AP30 hardcover book. Only 226 were chosen to appear online, 211 professional and 15 student entries. My ‘entry’ was a ‘chosen’ image.
here’s a link to the image, one of my favorites. http://www.ai-ap.com/slideshow/AP/30/?status=chosen#154
Thanks Jeanne and thank you American Photography for including me.
