Every year the APA in San Francisco, ( American Photographic Artists), hosts a very special event where 6 well respected judges select 100 images from the personal work of top Bay Area commercial photographers. Another 100 images are chosen to to be exhibited in an on-line gallery. Submission for the show can run as many as 1200 pieces. To be in either of the final groups is quite an honor. In years past I have always be lucky enough to be in the hung show.
This year I only submitted two images, but was still grateful to have one of them selected for the on-line gallery.
