35th Northern Counties - England https://karenkolbeckphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/9/35th-northern-counties---england Traditionally it's quite hard to get a good result in English photokompetitions, and I'm VERY happy today to recieve the message, that my 'Golden lining' was rewarded with a FIAP Gold medal as 'Best nature image' at the 35th Northern Counties International Salon of Photography 2014.

Besides this outstanding result I got two other acceptances.

Nature Biennale India https://karenkolbeckphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/9/nature-biennale-india THE DANISH SDF HAS DECIDED NOT TO ATTEND THIS BIENNALE DUE TO THE LACK OF INTEREST AMONG THE DANISH PHPTOGRAPHERS :(

Every second year a competition is held among the fotoorganisations from the different countries.

A number of judges from each country chooses among the submitted pictures from their members.

This year it is held in India - the two subjects are 'fight' and 'motion'.

Each country can send 2 x 20 images.

I got 7 out of 8 submitted pictures accepted ( but I must say that the number of submitted pictures from the danish photographers was dissapointingly small...)

In India a 'best country' will be chosen, and the individual pictures will also be judged - more will follow.
