We have received 56 fabulous entries in our 2nd annual Found Objects…Found Art Contest – with prizes from Satellite and Schiffer Books – and with submissions from Australia, Puerto Rico, Canada and the U.S. Cool, huh! Rather than take two full months to get through them one at a time, I think it makes sense to do a little blitz for the next 10 days – we’ll do three a day…starting today… in the straightforward order that they came in. Then…
The second step: Will be to narrow the field to 10 semifinalists. To help, I’ve asked Femme1 aka Deb – last year’s contest winner – to choose the semifinalists, based on originality and the written submission. She has an impossible task, really – because all of the entries are so heart felt. Cliche time: Everyone is a winner, you know it!
About Feb. 10 (if I have my timing right): We will put all the semifinalists on one Contest page – and over the course of one week, vote.
Again: Wow, these are wonderful! Oh, and there’s already an idea for a whole new, ongoing Photo Gallery: Dumpster Divers United. Everything we find and save in dumpsters. Don’t send me your pics yet – but get ready. MANY MANY THANKS to everyone for your enthusiastic participation in this contest. I hope you are enjoying the entries as much as I am.
