Px3 Paris Photo Competition

I entered a photo competition for the first time in 2014, the first year I began my photo degree. I didn't win anything. This year I submitted to an international competition in Paris with Prix de la Photographie. The winners were announced today and this is an excerpt of what I read:

Anna Thorne  of United States was Awarded Honorable Mention in Self-Portrait category for the entry entitled, " Surpassing Space, Transcending Time ." The jury selected winners from thousands of photography entries from over 85 countries. "

It's only a starting point for I have much bigger goals I wish to accomplish, but I am happy to know I am on the road. Who knows, maybe the next competition I will win first prize. I do know one thing though, it's nothing but uphill and I couldn't be more thankful for that.
