Winning the Contest
It feels really great when your photo took 1st place in one of 13 categories and was selected to be among 52 winning photographs, chosen from 4,100 photos, submitted by more than 700 photographers!
I'm talking about my "Snow Queen's Mischief" photo, which is a winner the City of Toronto Photo Contest "Building a great city - together"! 'Snow Queen's Mischief' is placed first /best overall in the category of "Toronto by night".
And really, it feels great!! On Monday, The City of Toronto hosted the evening reception for the winning photographers at City Hall and the event was excellent and exciting experience to remember and be proud of.
On this photo, you see (from left to right) Mayor David Miller, shaking my hand and congratulating me, Katrin Ray :-), and City Manager Joe Pennachetti. During the awarding, a photo of a winner was displayed on the scene's background, as you see here is my photo above :-)
