“The Nancy Pose” was chosen as one of the preliminary winners in the Songkla Zoo Photo Contest!
I mentioned in my previous post that this is my favorite picture of all the entries, and titled it myself.
We saw the picture from the zoo’s facebook page. I was very happy. But my husband most especially was beside himself with excitement. He was jumping and dancing. He said as an amateur photographer, it is already an honor to be chosen in the preliminaries.
As we read through the description though, we found out that the name of the photographer with which the picture was awarded to was not my husband’s. It was named to another Filipino expatriate, who is a friend of ours. OMG! Welcome to Thailand. It is so ridiculously amazing. You just do not commit such mistake with this kind of event. Before you release something publicly. It has to be checked and re-checked by not just one but two or more authorized personnel.
Well anyway, all is well that ends well. The zoo authorities were sorry and immediately corrected the mistake. Check out Songkla Zoo facebook page.
The final verdict is scheduled next week October 15 to 21, 2012. The event will take place in Lee Garden’s Hatyai, Thailand. We are so excited with the final ranking of the photos.
I will keep you posted.
Don’t forget to drop by then.
