Appalachian Mountain Photography Competition: Voting
On Friday, the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts in Boone, North Carolina started its exhibition of the 47 finalists from the Appalachian Mountain Photography Competition. The photographs are from 37 different photographers, including myself and D L Ennis, and will be on display at the Turchin Center through June 6th, 2009.
If you can’t make it down to Boone, North Carolina, you can see the finalists and participate in the “People’s Choice Award” by going to http://www.appmtnphotocomp.org/.
I will warn you that voting is not an especially easy process. First, you have to register with their site (Full name, email address, how did you hear about us). Next you will receive an email with a link to confirm your email address. Then you can see all the pictures.
At this point, when you think you are almost done, the real challenge begins. You only get three votes. I can’t even decide on three favorites in the “BRP Share the Journey: Dogs” category and there are only five finalists! I don’t know how I’m going to choose three over the entire set.
One thing is for sure– the photos are beautiful and inspiring. They represent the Appalachian Mountains well.
