Am working on a case to hate so I will reserve some of that feeling for my own but will practice with yours.

LOL - yep it's definitely that time of year. And I plan to have a case this year too, even if it kills me. So, while I'd like to hate your case, Jeff, I know that I will really need to hate mine even more. Please send some of your hate this way if you can spare it!

Personally, I don't have to worry about this ... the judges at "state" hated mine, so it's cool, I can just relax. :(

Mine was hated so bad at district that they hucked it to the curb and ran over it. I will be swapping one image and resubmitting. Ergh

I had that actually happen to my very first case I ever submitted to the National Judging back in the '80's - back in the cassette audio tape critique time period. It got run over by something in transit - the case was crushed and all four prints had the same crease across the prints - center top to middle right - they scored 79, 79, 79, 79 at the national judging - back when they used numerical scores... the critiquer remarked on the cassette tape that one of the problems was that they were poorly mounted because of the creases - I won't mention the name of the critiquer, but he's no longer a judge. The case came back to me taped together, but the upright sides were crushed and torn from where it was run over...

Kim,
I have been waiting to show them because I might use an image in comp at Nationals or my state. I will show them soon though ok? Thanks for your advice. Wish we could have caught up while I was there.

well dang. I REALLY hate my case now. I shouldn't have waited until the very last possible second to choose a final image and to print. I would've noticed the mistakes in my files and had a chance to reprint. I'm kicking myself right now.

One saving grace is that IPC is a little later in the year so I have time to come up with replacements, since I'm going to need some.

I'm officially hating Jeff's case and my case too.

Northeast District is this week, so I'd appreciate some hating ;)

I LOVE my case! It's the prints inside I'm not so crazy about.

Hey Jeff, are you submitting only EI work this year? How far are you from your Artistic masters?

good point, good point :)

I admit I'm pretty angry with myself...I hate when simple mistakes slip past me.
Ah well, on to photographing that fork.....

Hey Ron,
I wont make the SEPPA deadline, but should have something for IPC in August. I also enter PO as I am required to merit an image every two years. I am not close, but am hoping to get a lot closer this year. How about you?
Jeff

Mark_Turner
04-01-2012, 05:36 PM
Well, turns out I really did hate my case. Only 1 merited, with 3 being accepted to hang.

Jeff_Dachowski
04-01-2012, 05:59 PM
Mark,
I got the same results!

Jeff

Mark_Levesque
04-01-2012, 06:37 PM
Are you guys saying you each had a print that was judged to be unacceptable?

Ron_Jackson
04-01-2012, 07:20 PM
Jeff I have been building my folder of potential comp images. All right now are for EI or I guess it's now MA. All my print merits are in that catagory right now. If I get really really lucky this year, I will be close to enough print merits. I still need more speaking and service merits to complete it though. Plus I missed entering anything last year due to the time involved moving to Baton Rouge.

Jeff_Dachowski
04-01-2012, 07:53 PM
Mark,
I had one merit, and three not merit. I believe that is Mark T's results as well.

The luck of the I Hate My Case threads is over I guess. Better fortune at IPC to you both!

ps I went 0 for 4 so CHEER UP!!!

Mark_Turner
04-02-2012, 12:24 AM
That's right, I got an 80, and 3 76-78's, which are good enough to hang at GPPA. I'll be needing to decide whether to re submit them to IPC with or without tweaking, or use 3 others.

Mark_Levesque
04-02-2012, 01:00 AM
Ok, Jeff. I was just confused because you only have 3 scores in the official results.

mbalthaser
04-02-2012, 01:41 AM
I guess I should have chimed in on this thread! Add me to the one merit and three 76's club!!

Glad to know I am in good company. :) My worst year ever.

Yep gotta a lot of work to do before IPC or my good streak will be ending. Come on Chontelle let's kill this thing together!!!

Erin_L._Clark
04-02-2012, 05:26 PM
Ugh Chontelle & Sarah- sorry to hear... it sounds like SEPPA was tough!

when is IPC deadline? I got a couple so close they were purple, I need to figure out if I should continue to work them to get to blue-

I would love some feedback from our experienced competition photographers- let me know if you have time and I'll get you the images to look at- TIA!

Same here :(

Mine were from North Central and I deserved just what I got. I rushed to get thing in and should have just waited for IPC. Lesson learned. That's why I didn't get MA images to SEPPA.

So let's see what we can do to help each other get moving on stuff for Nationals (IPC)

Online registration will open May 29, 2012

July 2, 2012: Online registration deadline for digital and print submissions. Case must be received by July 10, 2012, or will be subject to late fee.

It's only my second year, but my scores this time were very humbling to say the least. I was going to skip sending anything to IPC because I mistakenly thought the deadline was much earlier, but now I see we have untill July 2nd I may have time to produce something worthwhile.

Rick_Massarini
04-02-2012, 10:48 PM
The deadlines are later this year than has been in the past since the actual judging has moved (this year) from the middle of June to the middle of August.

Mark_Levesque
04-02-2012, 11:06 PM
And yet the districts were moved to be earlier, which is why I didn't get a case in for the first time since joining PPA. Odd, that.

Rick_Massarini
04-02-2012, 11:15 PM
The change in the dates of the IPC had nothing to do with the dates of the District judgings - it was moved because the college we usually use will be in session and won't be available until August.

A lot of things go into scheduling a District judging since they are always held in conjunction with a state or regional convention that hosts the District judging - and regional conventions have a lot of planning to do - hotels, speakers, exhibitors, exhibit space, etc, and their scheduling is based on all of those logistics. The IPC has a lot of logistics, but not as much as a regional convention has - all they have to move is the travel dates for the judges, the staff and volunteers, and the hotel reservations. The dates were pushed back this year because the facility that we usually use for the judging will not be available until the middle of August. The judging is held at a college, and they changed their semester structure so they will be in session during June when we usually hold the IPC - so they pushed the judging back to August when the school will be out of session and the facility will be available.

I for one am very thankful IPC is later. I now have more time to create worthy images to send. Plus I have 2 test competitions at my local group, Northern Illinois(PPANI), before the deadline to try them out.
Guess I need to get my butt in gear!

Oh I am so glad I am not alone. I really hated my swppa case and somehow came out with two seals. Right now, trying to fill those two holes for IPC is just killing me. I hate everything. I have a mock print comp for our local PPA and I can't stand printing anything. So glad this is common, I was thinking there was something wrong with me.
