I took time away from entering awards - all of them - for 2 years. I just stopped entering the things. Entering is time consuming and expensive and frankly, for a while there, I wasn't certain how valid any of the competitions are with the web explosion in this particular medium. But, the 'classics' have endured, and I consider Graphis a classic. Three images will be in the 2014 Photography Annual Book. One earned the Silver Award ('Ritz-Carlton', top left). It's nice to be in the company of some really great photographers. All the thanks go to the clients that give me the opportunities.
