    Default International Image Comp

    Well I just had to post from the competition. The first day is done! On day one we were running 3 panels and there have been some incredible images. I wish everyone could be down here to witness the competition for themselves. We are using new judging software, like anything new there is a learning curve. In the long run it is going to make things stronger and probably even quicker to post results. Each judge is assigned an ipod that is used for scoring. It shows a small thumbnail and the title of the image that is being judged so the title is available to the judges (really helpful when you need to reference the title again or in the case of pronounciation problems). This also insures that the image that is up is the correct image that corresponds to the the makers ppa number, case number and image submitted (should be a major help with all the triple checking for accuracy at the end of the competition). I need to get going so until later . . . good luck to all and start thinking about images for your district competition. It will be here before you know it.

    There are 50 some judges here, 30 plus volunteers and some other staff people. Imagine if you had a business with almost 100 employees. . . and you got new computor equipment and software and tried to teach everyone how to use it in one day. That's what this new program has been like. It's going to be great in the long run but we all are newbies with the program right now, so it's slowing us down. Once everybody learns the ins and outs of the program and the equipment it is going to create huge membership benefits. But for this year, please be patient if results aren't up as quickly as they were past years.

    So how long does it usually take to get the results, so I can wait longer this year before I check?

    Lori, that just means we have to wait a few more hours before the official "When will the results be posted?" thread has been started.

    I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.
