While I don't know what the entire results from the competition are yet I did get a bit of good news today from ASP president, Ernie Johnson.

Last night we had our state meeting so I missed his call. Worried all night that I had done something wrong. He called back early this morning. Seems my print Got'cha won the ASP Gold Medallion Award. Still can't believe that. Of all those 99's and 100's I saw at SEPPA, not to mention the other regional competitions so I was sure not expecting anything like that.

Sure has made my day...!

Sure won't miss this convention. Have a lot to be thankful for and to celebrate this year. The day after Ernie called me about the gold medallion award the PPA results were posted and found out that all four prints went loan this year.

Somebody must be lookin out for me...!

Thanks Keith...

The only downside was that I wasn't able to share the good news with my dad. He had been real sick and in the hospital for some time. Just figured he would bounce back like he always had before. But...he passed away before I could tell him all the good news.

My dad was a photographer too and taught me so much early in my career when I worked for him as a lab rat. Provided me with the tools and the knowledge that gave me such a good foundation in photography.

Sorry to hear about your dad, Joe. But congratulations on your award. And I'm sure your dad knows about your award. :)
