  • It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, that fated, feted year of 2016. But now it's time to join in a celebration of our common passion for the photographic arts and see the 101 finalists of out Best of 2016 photo contest! We had almost 400 entries vying for the honor of finalist and the glory of the prizes to be awarded in each category, a big increase over last year. There is some great talent out there and unique visions of this fabulous world in which we live are in our show, so this is an event not to me missed! Tell your friends to put it on their calendar!

    The party starts at 7:00, attendees will vote for the People's Choice at 8:30 and all of the winners will be announced at 9. Plenty of time to mingle, mix, feast and ogle the art. See you there!

    Hey Jennifer Schillers is having a buy one get one free plus 40% sale. It will save you quite a bit of money. I was there today and placed my order. Anyone else that doesn't know, it is a very good sale. You can get bogo on metal prints too!!!

      ArtToFrames has given me some good frames, but they take awhile and I did have one come with broken glass once (they replaced it). I recently purchased one from CraigFrames which I was pleased with as well.

    I'm having to special order frames to fit the 24" dimensions required - mostly for my panoramic sized photos (16x10 - which I'd like to print 24x16). The alternative is to print my photos smaller than I'd like to fit with frame/mat. I'd love to make metal prints of everything, but that would break the budget. If we can extend to at least 26"-27" (or even 30") frames, I have something to work with. Is there any chance of this?

      I didn't know about Schillers until Myron mentioned it. It doesn't seem to be a deal that's online right now. I ordered from DivLab.

      I think I'm particularly overwhelmed with Seen10, ResistSTL, Focus, and City of the Night all going on simultaneously.

    As a learning opportunity, will the judges ratings/comments be made available to the photographer for any photos that were submitted but not selected for the exhibit? Also, for photos that were selected, when are prints due?


    February 14

    • Edward C.

      All of the ratings will be posted at the closing show, and we will do a critique of those images which didn't make the top 101 at a later date.

    Just double checking - the maximum length is 24" - and this includes frame. Correct?

    February 13

    • Edward C.

      Yep. Thanks for asking.

      February 13

    • Kathy B.

      Oh am glad you asked that, I wasn't sure if the measurement included a frame.

  • Kris K.

    Have the finalist been notified and is there a list of finalist?
