This year we decided to enter seven of our photographs from the last year in the 2007 San Diego County Fair Photography Exhibition. Over 4,000 photographs were entered in 23 categories. Each category has a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place ribbon and cash prize. Photos can also earn Honorable Mention ribbons.
About 1,100 photos were chosen for display (about 1/4 of the submissions), but six of our seven photos were chosen for display. One of our photos got an Honorable Mention ribbon, but......
We took FIRST PLACE in the "Celebrating Heroes" category (the theme of this year's fair)!!!! Wow, we're still in shock.
After all of the first place winners are chosen, they compete against each other for Best In Show (the best photograph out of 4,000+ submissions). We fell just two votes short for Best in Show. aaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww..... Still pretty dang cool if you ask us!
Here is the photo, your First Place winner for the Celebrating Heroes category, titled "Born Into Freedom".
