The Photographer's Bar
When I picked up my post this afternoon, I really wasn't expecting to find an envelope from The Guild of Photographers and when I saw what was inside I wanted to jump for joy and tell absolutely everyone what the contents said.
Inside was a certificate telling me that I have been awarded The Photographers Bar. I am still smiling and have no idea when I'll stop.
This is what The Guild say about Photographers Bar ....
"Membership of the 'Photographers Bar' is a unique distinction awarded to those photographers who have successfully had images assessed by the Guild of Photographers over the course of a year and have
attained a score that evidences an exceptional level of professional skill and consistency throughout that a full year.
The Guild of Photographers is a highly respected association for all photographers and its competition attracts up to 1500 images for judging by an expert Panel of Judges each month. Points are given to entries and these are then totalled at the end of the year. Those who reach the required threshold are then awarded membership of the 'Photographers Bar'.
Membership of the 'Photographers Bar' is a distinction that is very difficult to achieve - in fact less than 200 photographers have achieved it in the 5 years since its inception, during which time almost 60,000 images
will have been entered for assessment by photographers across the UK and from overseas".
Those people at The Guild certainly know how to make someone happy and I am eternally grateful for the generosity and support of the members I've had the privilege to meet.
Thank you Guild...... still smiling, yep ... smiling ...

And I'm still smiling ......
