Sorry for the format, it did not look that way when I typed it out. Changed when I posted it.

Hey Steve: Jim Parker posted this info earlier this afternoon.  I'm sorry you didn't get in!

You apply in Mixed Media, right? Looks like there was some serious competition in your category. Whenever I've been involved in a jury the Mixed Media category is the hardest one to "categorize", the combination of materials makes each entry so different from each other. Even if we didn't read descriptions for the other categories we almost always read the MM descriptions, because you can't really be sure what you are looking at.

Have you ever been in this show? Have you attended it? Was this the 5th time you've been rejected?

Thanks to the WPSAF committee and Caroline Bird for sending this info to the applicants and thanks to you and Jim Parker for sharing it.

Never done the March show, yes our 5th rejection in a row. Have used 3 different sets of images including new ones this time. Am going to give this one a rest for the next few years, let them collect jury fees from someone else.

i don't apply anymore.  I got in 1984-86, then was juried out for 25 straight years.  I said aloha, aint getting anymore jury money from me.  I get along just nicely w/o Winter Park.
