I was preparing to submit a few pieces to PX3 (Prix de la Photographie Paris) and stumbled upon my submission history. I’d submitted in 2018 and not placed, but discovered that I’d also submitted wayyy back in 2016…and received an Honorable Mention for my series.
I’d had NO idea. I don’t remember receiving and email either way and I had no record of the submission, so this was a pleasant surprise. It means my first HM wasn’t 2018 at the International Photography Awards, but two full years earlier at PX3 2016.
Wonder what I might have done differently if I’d known…
Maybe it’s just as well : P
I’ve included screen captures below. Though I cringe at the editing I still like the photos and can always re-edit.
