Every year I enter the “THE TAYLOR WESSING PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAIT PRIZE” and every year I hope to get in and every year I don’t! :(

It’s so frustrating but I am not giving up, I will enter again next year.

Below is their reply:
“I wanted to thank you for entering the competition this year. The judges have now made their final selection and I am sorry to inform you that on this occasion your work has not been selected for exhibition.

However, I did want to let you know that your photograph did make it through to the second round of judging which included around 346 images. This year we had a total of 4,303 prints submitted into the competition from 1,842 photographers so the competition was very strong.”
