I entered the Worldwide Photography Gala Awards ‘Best Shots’ competition a month or so ago. There were 9280 Images received from 57 countries. 960 images [10.3%] passed the lst screening and were entered into the second screening. 186 images of 137 artists were selected as Best Shots, to be featured in the Book 2011 Best Shots. The selected images were from artists from 39 different countries.
I received an Honorable Mention selection [one of the 137] for two of my images [out of the 186] - Still Life in Bhutan and Through a Rome Doorway.

Images will be posted later at the WPGA site but may be found on my own gallery site.
