On March 31 of this year, I decided to enter a rather prestigious American art competition sponsored by ‘The Artist’s Magazine’, a widely circulated and respected US publication.
One of the pictures I entered was “Barton”, below.
Last week I received the following notification!
Congratulations! Your artwork, Barton, has been selected as a finalist in the Landscape category of The Artist’s Magazine 31st Annual Art Competition. Your name, city, state and/or country will appear among the lists of finalists published in the December 2014 issue.
The competition’s entries, over 7,500, were particularly strong this year. As editors, we had a difficult task to whittle the field; it is truly an achievement that your work was among the ones we sent to the jurors.
Thank you very much for entering our contest and sharing your fine work with us.
