Ventura County is still a big agricultural area and the annual Ventura County Fair reflects that with a lot of very traditional competition categories such as Livestock entries and Home Arts. However, they also have Photography entries. Amateur photographers (that’d be me) are allowed 10 entries with a maximum of 2 entries in any classification.
I, of course, entered the max of 10 entries and my results… 7 out of 10 entries were recognized! I am quite overwhelmed. I saw a lot of entries that received no recognition that were at least as good as mine.
2nd Place – Domestic Animals
3rd Place – Photo Journalism
