This week I recieved a letter from Serbin Communications. In November I entered a photography competition for the Best of College Photography 2006. I was notified that I am a FINALIST! There were 28,000 photos entered from 12 different countries. The top 5% were chosen to move into the finalist round. Since I submitted more than one photo (see collage) I am not sure which one caught their eye. Just for being selected as a finalist, I will be published in a hardcover book title Best of College Photography 2006. It will be distributed to every photography program in the nation. The week of February 9th is the notification timeline for the winners and honorable mention list. I'm crossing my fingers for a good birthday gift. Watch for an update!
