    The Power of Self, competition

    Hey All,

    I have entered a competition titled "the power of self" which is basically an art/photography online exhibit with the theme being self portraits. Having been working on a few myself lately, and with a few in the bag already from the past, I decided to give it a go and put up some work.

    The competition is being curated by some high profile people including the Guggenheim Museum curator, Helen Hsu.

    So I invite you to drop in and have a look at some of my works and if so inclined please take the time to enter your rating of my work. There is also a publics choice category involved as well and so the ratings will count. A rating can be placed once every 24 hours.

    Self Portrait Portfolio

    I usually do not enter these online exhibits but this theme came around at the right time for me and i felt compelled to put something out there.

    Thanks

    You'll get it Gary!
    As you may recall, I entered an Artist Wanted's competition a couple of years ago, and was voted one of the top 20 popular portfolios, largely in part of the support I got from the great PR.com community.
    So come on, VOTE FOR Gary!!
    Where ever you log onto PR.com make sure you vote. You can vote once a day from as many different computers as you do in your day.

    Greg, thanks for the help. I like the portrait of the girl you posted at the KCW artists lounge program.
    Did you post that one here in the critique forum? I must have missed it.

    I missed this thread until today -- my vote has been cast! Nice photos!

    Hey, PR, remember to vote for Brian in Off-Topic -- he needs to take the lead -- he's now second up from third!!

    Brian, do you remember if it is the highest rated or the most rated that plays into consideration most?

    Thanks much, Jet. I think my work stands a good chance for some serious consideration and i'm hoping the ratings can bring the work to their attention. thats basically what happens with this, as they will have so many portfolios to sort through.

    Submissions terminate at the close of January 14th and so i would imagine the rating/voting ends then too. When it officially stops, you will not be able to cast a rating so you will know. If it allows you to rate, then it is still on.
    thanks many times over for your good words and support. I'll need it all.
