      I'm a little overwhelmed that I just received this email.

      Dear Lauri, 

      I hope this email finds you well. We congratulate for having been awarded in the 11th edition of the Julia Margaret Cameron Award for Women Photographers.

      Being a 11th JMCA awardee, according to the rules of this competition and following the recommendation of our curators, this letter is to confirm our invitation to exhibit your selected work at the 5thBiennial of Fine Art & Documentary Photography to be held in Barcelona on October 4-21, 2018.

      You have been awarded in the following category: 
      Abstract & Still Life: FinalistFine Art: Finalist

      Initially a friend found the image Chicago Ice & Architecture was a finalist and let me know, I was unaware that the other two images I submitted were finalists as well until this morning!

      So exciting.

      Here is the other image. Would be nice to submit for the gallery exhibit, I haven't decided as it's a bit of a cost, and then there is the decision to go see them in person! I've always wanted to go to Barcelona!

      Wow, Lauri, you're there with some pretty great photos from amazing photographers I know. I hope you won't mind me posting a bigger version of one of your shots:

      Thanks Chris, it's the first time I've entered this one. Have only entered a portrait contest last year which is so not my thing! I got great feedback though on the images so it was a learning experience. I have also started submitting to local (Chicago) galleries this past year and have had a few pieces accepted so far. It's all a learning experience, getting my Fine Art work out there and trying to figure out what to do with all that.

      I do not mind at all. My goal next year is to knock off the winner of the Architecture category, I know her and she's won it the last two years! We have to have goals, right?
