TPS 26: The International Competition

Levelland, Texas
photographed 11.1.2014

Six. In a row. That’s how many juried photography shows I didn’t get accepted to. That’s six emails that I didn’t read past the depressing combination of “thank you for your interest” and “however.”

Today, I got one of the other kinds of emails, the ones I read all the way to the end! My photo “Some Illumination” was accepted into the Texas Photographic Society’s International Competition; Alison Nordstrӧm was the juror. The show will be at the J. Wayne Stark Galleries at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, from May 18 through July 16; the show will have subsequent stops at teh Center for Contemporary Arts in Abilene, Texas, and the Options Gallery at Odessa College, in Odessa, Texas. Stop by, if you can!

  1. Congratulations Melinda. That run of six emails (from non-sighted juries) must have been getting hard to take. This is a very nice photograph. Kind of like that one of yours, also colour, of a sink in a derelict room, which happens to hang on a wall in my house. This one would go well.


  2. Congratulations on having a very smart juror recognize your very good (excellent!) photograph!


  3. Congratulations, great image!


  4. I remember this one well – I really like it. Does that make me a good judge? Well done 😄


  5. That’s wonderful news! Congratulations.


  6. Woot! What a thrill for you.


  7. Well deserved!


  8. All part of the art game…but it never feels quite right.


  9. How wonderful .. 😃 and what a gorgeous photo
