    A "Woot" Moment

    I haven't entered many National Photographic Salons (3 to be exact) and don't usually like to give myself a public pat on the back but I was stunned to receive my results from the 2012 Australian Photographic Society National Exhibition - Digital this afternoon. I just had to share it with you all because most of what I have learned has been from feedback received right here on AP
    I received 7 acceptances
    2 in Open, 2 in Nature, 1 in Mono and 2 in Photojournalism.
    Needless to say - I am over the moon.

    Good on yer mate ~ well done

    I haven't entered any APS Nationals for many years, but I can certainly remember the excitement when the post arrived with the judging details for whichever exhibition I was entering

    Also - having staged a number of exhibitions and therefore watched the judging panel filter their way through dozens down to a short list, then thru the shortlist down to the 1 - 2 - 3 - 4, was pretty hi-tension as well

    So - keep on bragging and jumping up & down on them there efelants

    Congrrats. More woots to come soon then.

    PS: what does a woot look like? Sounds like a small furry animal!

    Thank-you everyone - I can imagine how the people that receive awards must feel like. I get excited by acceptances at this stage
    Phil - I have never had the opportunity to watch the judging because ... well NT doesn't host any Nationals. It would be interesting to watch and learn from though. Interestingly - my fave subjects fared best including 2 birds, horse racing, rodeo, a jumping spider, a 'light painting' and a mono portrait of my son

    Thanks Crazy Morton - I will upload then tonight when I get home from work. I think I have probably posted most of them to AP in the critique areas at some stage but I will round the mall up in one spot
