And if you thought that was tough, it had to be even tougher when I asked each of the judges to pass me their favorite 5-10 images from all of the submissions. Justin passed me 8 of his favorites.
Please note: all judging was done blind. The jurist didn't have access to any information about the artists that created the works.
Also, being picked for recognition by an individual jurist does not guarantee selection into the book, but you gotta bet it should does bode well.
