p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · OC Fair Award Winners (Updated with Awards)


Three of us from FM Landscape entered photos into the Orange County Fair here in California. Greg Fountain, Tuan Le and myself, and all 3 of us won awards!

Unless I missed a photo there, both Greg Fountain and Tuan Le beat me out as they both got 1st place awards. While I didn't get a 1st place award, I did manage to get two awards, a 2nd place and a Jurors Choice. I took iphone shots of Greg's and Tuan's shots that won, if they want to add the actual shot to this thread, that would be great, but for now my iphone will have to do, you will see some reflections in the glass I just couldn't eliminate. Also while Greg's shot wouldn't be considered a Landscape shot, since he is one of ours and he won an award for it, I am adding it here. Plus... it's a totally adorable shot!

Congrats to Greg and Tuan!

The OC Fair runs until August 11, but it is closed on Mondays and Tuesday, please if you are in SoCal go head over there, it's a fun fair to attend and check out all of the Fine Art Photography while you are there.

Jim

Greg Fountain - First Place Award






Jim Fox - Jurors Choice Award






Jim Fox - 2nd Place Award

I had 2 pictures accepted. I'm just so thrilled with that. No awards, but to get picked to be entered is still exciting.

Congrats gentlemen on the fine work! It's not easy to get those awards.

Yes, I'm MV. (south oc). My whole fam is on vacation this week, so I'll be shooting sunsets all week. I need to work on purposeful compositions, even if the color isn't actually there.

Very nice work guys.

Jim, do they let you choose your own matting/framing or is it all the same? I'm only asking because the two pictured appear to be identical.

They give you size guidelines and recommend they have black frames and white mats. But it's not required. Still, if it's 'recommended', who would do otherwise?

Hey Justin,

As Teri mentioned they highly recommend the black frame and matting saying that the judges will take whole presentation into account. So yeah, I figured I didn't want to shoot my shots in the foot by mounting and framing them differently. Though each shot cost me about $100, even with picking up the frames at Aaron Brothers with the buy 1 get one for $1 sale.

Now as I went through the fair yesterday, there were a few photos that won that did not have matting. There were a couple that won that had no matting and the frames were brown... so not sure how much the judges do actually take into account that framing. Also I figured bigger was better, but then there were a few 8x10's with a non-matted frame that won... Mine and I think Tuans's were printed at 12x18 and then we matted and framed them to be 18x24.

It could be that the judges don't pay as much attention to the framing as rthe guidelines said, but as being a kind of gallery presentation I will say the display as a whole is more attractive with most of the photos being framed similarly.

Jim
