I'm pleased to announce the winners of the Keck Photo Contest:
We'll have a Print Offer of all three of the winning prints, with the proceeds of the sales being the prize. (You'll see the winning images at that time.) The Grand Prize Winner, David Jacobs, also wins a week at a luxury condo in Hawaii courtesy of an anonymous reader (to whom many thanks).
In addition to the Contest Winners' Sale, we have two other Print Offers planned soon: One is a single, small silver print, called "The Card Game," the best or "signature" photo my 84-year-old father took during a lifetime as an enthusiastic amateur and semi-pro (a businessman, he wrote and illustrated articles for travel and food magazines on the side). The other is that we have an agreement in principle to offer some of the uncommonly beautiful, lyrical landscape work of Kate Kirkwood, with fine prints by Ctein.
We'll be doing the same thing again with the Contest Winners' Sale as we did with the Keck Contest. Any buyer of a print from that sale will be invited to submit work for a future sale*.
As I said before, I was very impressed both by the high average quality of the submissions and with readers' obvious printing skills. There were many outstanding submissions; choosing winners was uncommonly difficult. It was a satisfying experience for me to see so much nice work and so many beautiful prints (although I think my choices will be very controversial and will lead to much discussion. I hope no one's feelings will be hurt).
Thanks again to everyone who participated, and congratulations again to David J., Missy, and David B.
*The reason for the restriction is to limit the number of submissions. The 228 prints we received for the Keck Contest were about right for me to handle; an open submission might draw thousands of prints, which would overwhelm me.
