This past Thursday, April 9, 2015, I received news that two of my images (depicted above), “Chasing the North Wind” and “Chasing After Mom,” were selected for the 4th Annual Jackson Hole Photography Competition, hosted by the Art Association of Jackson Hole and held annually in Jackson, Wyoming.
Opening April 17th, the exhibition will run thru May 22, 2015, and will showcase new and exciting photographs in the Art Association Gallery at 240 S. Glenwood Street in Jackson, Wyoming. My photographs, along with others selected for the competition, will be on sale during this time.
There will be an opening reception April 17th, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The competition consisted of four image – Wildlife/Animal, Outdoor Life/Sports, Portrait/Figure, Experimental/ Abstract. Twenty photographs were selected for each category and will be on display during the exhibition.
The jury for this year’s competition was comprised of local, national, and internationally esteemed professional photographers, Ramak Fazel, Karolina Karlic, and Tom Mangelsen.
As the association states in their promotional material, “The photography competition event is a great time to collect affordable prints from award-winning photographers.”

Congratulations! I think you know my favorite is Chasing After Mom but they are both awesome! Good luck in the competition.
Thank you, Joyce. “Chasing After Mom” was made the same day you were with Lori and myself on Mount Evans. You probably have an almost identical image . . . and, it was the day you made the image that won Grand Champion at the county fair.
