International Photography Awards
I like the idea of notifying participants along the way, but it seems like they need to work out a few kinks. I'm hoping tomorrow I get three email... the first email for a third time, the second email for a second time, and a third notice for the first time?
Keepin this blog (with it's seemingly amazing search engine results: welcome everyone) as the hub of info, continue to post any new notifications and/or notices from the IPA Awards as the quest continues. Best of luck to all.
UPDATE: received above email again 7:00am today (Tuesday).
SIDE NOTE: what in the world? are these comments the photography equivalent to Alcoholics Anonymous? What with all the anonymity? Award winners Anonymous? I'll start first, My name is Aaron, and I've been clean of awards for 3 months, but I hope to get off the wagon very shortly.
