OK Chontelle, and anyone else that may have sat through the judging at SEPPA. Here are my 4 entries. If you remember how any of these did you can feel free to post it here. Cindy will post hers next and you will notice that we each have an image that's very similar. Heartbeat Lullaby and Embrace the Moment(Cindy's) are the same concept but shot a year apart with different subjects. Hers was shot first .

Here are my 4. This is my first contest ever so I'm not expecting much but I'll take what I can get. :)

Missed Kiss merited. :). I don't remember the baby in cream.

I already let Greg know his mom and baby merited too.

I'm very thrilled with Missed Kiss!!!!! It scored 78 at State but I didn't wanna give up on it so I took it off my wall and added it to the case at the last minute.

I'm not sure what baby in cream you're referring to....Baby Blues maybe?

Any Day now(Maternity) did not merit. I'm not sure if I wanna rework it or find a replacement.

Thanks Amy. I'm ecstatic as well but still waiting to see how Baby Blues did. If I'm lucky(very lucky) I'll be 3 for 4 but I'll settle for 2 if that's the case.

Chontelle went 3 for 4 btw(stalked your FB page) which is downright awesome!

I know this is Greg's thread, but I'm going to jump on and add to it with my entries. We had the awards banquet last night, which was combined with our state awards (since Georgia was hosting SEPPA this year), my scores qualified me for a number of awards within our state.

Now, note to self for next year... I did digital entries. Based on my scores, HAD I PRINTED MY IMAGES, rather than digital entry, I would have been eligible for the Kodak (or Fuji) awards at our banquet... but, alas, I took the digital shortcut.


NAPTIME - scored 78

Way to go Heather! The more images we have posted here the better. Do you plan to re-work the 2 78's or replace them?

Our state refused to join SEPPA(before I arrived) so when it comes to awards I don't think we can receive anything other than seals there.

I am so happy for all of you. However I would caution you that some of us here will be judging at Nationals. It is generally best to keep your images "fresh" for the judges until after IPC. I am going to avoid this thread now so I do not know who's stuff is who's. Perhaps next time title it something about judges please don't look. Just sayin'

Title is now fixed. Judges have been shooed away.

Hey Jin, welcome to the forums! Did they give you any idea about when they would be posted or did they just say soon?
