Miller’s Lab has an annual photography contest. I entered on a whim and was completely surprised when my photo won a space in their second (of four) rounds and then 3rd place overall for the ‘Humorous” category. There were 5 categories, 3 winners in each – over 9,500 submission overall.
Matilda Jane clothing had a photo contest which I won the first round (narrowed to 50 photographers).
My photos were published in a magazine when one of my dear friend’s Aveda salon was featured in their magazine.
