Today our beautiful Katelyn received a letter in the mail. She opened it and began giggling!
What did it say?
First, she was thanked for entering the 35th Annual College and High School Photography Contest, co-sponsored by Nikon. Apparently, over 17,000 entries were received. One of Katelyn's photos was chosen as a FINALIST! If her photo is chosen as a 1st through 4th place she will be entered into the Nikon's Emerging Photographer's Hall of Fame.
All contest Finalists will be published in the hard cover book College and High School Photography 2015. The next sentence reads: Because you are a finalist, your work will appear in this year's edition. She will receive a copy of the book sometime in June.
This is the photo she entered into the contest:
As you can imagine, our girl is beyond thrilled! The 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place will be sent letters by February 9 as to their win. Honorable mention will be awarded to all other finalists.
Congratulations Katelyn! We are so proud of you! I can't even imagine judging over 17,000 entries, but I Know You are a Winner!
