Jackie has some exciting news to share, but I think she's too shy to share it without a little coaxing......c'mon Jackie, tell us already!

Lori, you are so onery!!!

This weekend was our state convention. Our print competition this fall was really harsh. Of the approx. 160 entries, maybe 25-30 of those hung with 80+. One of my prints did hang, two of them did originally and then were talked down in a challenge.

Regardless, it was a good day! I entered 4 folios for the first time and am happy with the results!

Today I ended up with:

Best Folio - Senior Girl (this folio scored an 85)

Seniors Choice (this is an award given to the folio deemed the best by a panel of HS seniors and was scored by the print judges as an 82)

and best of all.........

Illinois Senior Photographer of the Year (for the combined folio scores as a collective total)

Yah, that one was talked down from an 82 to a 79. Funny, from what was created as a studio image ended up being deemed 'obviously created on location' by the judges. :p I'm not giving up on it, though that is TOTALLY dependent on what my 'inside sources' of image quality believe when they see it. :D

10-30-2007, 04:56 AM
Sometimes these judges seem to have spent too much time in their own fumes, making conjectures that do not comport with reality (however erudite they may sound in the abstract.) I figured that was the one they talked down, and I can only shake my head. It was a standout to me. But it sounds like you were reasonably successful nonetheless. ;) LOL

No complaining here! :D

10-30-2007, 05:30 AM

Nice Job J
How'd the tour go? Sorry I missed it.

I honestly totally forgot all about it, and it was right here (at some point it moved from Peoria to Bloomington). I just zoomed it...my fault for falling out of touch with Jackie for a while.

I'll have to shmooze her for an invite to her new studio.;)

10-31-2007, 02:34 AM
Thanks to EVERYONE for their great support. I will get the folio images together to show you soon, I am a bit behind on things now that the studio tour is done and the convention is over.

The studio tour went well and if you didn't make it, you missed the chocolate fountain! No need to shmooze for a tour though Kirk, you know you are welcome anytime. Same to you too, Rory and David L.. I might even have some truffles left over.

Again, thanks everyone! It is all of you that I have to thank for your continuing support that has helped me do this. You're the best!

10-31-2007, 06:20 AM
I am sure you have seen many of these images before, though the state of Illinois folio competition hadn't seen them at all!

This was Senior's Choice ....


This was Best Folio- Senior Girl....


10-31-2007, 06:21 AM
The other two, which both did 'hang' as well....



10-31-2007, 01:31 PM
Those are awesome! Thanks for sharing! :D I am soooo jealous of that waterfall. What a cool thing to have around!

11-02-2007, 06:07 PM
Oh, congratulations as well! Wow great images!

11-07-2007, 03:01 PM
I heard from our print chairman recently and there is more NEWS from Illinois!

Apparently, when the scores were all figured for the folio competition there was a 3 way tie for IL Senior Photog of the Year - The other 2 winners are Bob Summit and Matt Kane, if you know then, give them a pat on the back!!

For clarification, the Sr. Photog. of the Year is apparently based up the combined score of the makers girl folio and boy folio, not all folios entered. The entries for just those 2 folios for each of us was the same number and since it was realized after the judging was over, nobody was there to break the tie, therefore it is being awarded to all 3 photogs.

Congrats to all!

11-07-2007, 05:16 PM
Hey Jackie,

I'm jumping in late with a congratulations. Your work has improved by leaps and bounds since my first post here so long ago.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with in the future.

:) And congrats on the mag!

11-07-2007, 06:35 PM
nobody was there to break the tie

I'll go ahead and break the tie....

I vote for you Jackie :)

11-07-2007, 06:45 PM
Thanks, Don. :) That made my day. :D
