    I might think about it for next year, but the most TW portrait I have is of a man who I know would be dead set against it being entered. Into anything. That and the fact that I'm also going through a period of massive self-doubt and loathing which I'm assuming I'll work through eventually.

    Aw Geren. That's a hard time so be a little gentle with yourself. I felt the same before I started putting in pics to Salons - just to get me through a really bad patch. Concentrates the mind wonderfully.
    Actually, I put into the TW portrait comp this year simply because I'm reaching that age where you can't count on maybe next year! I really don't hold out much hope for mine, far too amateurish, but I do so hope Fen's gets at least long-listed because in my view it's great!
    Best of luck to you.

    Hey-Ho! No luck, as expected. There were 4,193 entries and only 60 were selected for exhibition, including the shortlisted ones.
    Glad I had a go though - it made me print up some work, properly, and I was happy with it. At least it will be winging its way back to me, so I can pin it up on my walls somewhere.
    Perhaps next year I'll have a few more to choose from. :)

    Yes, Kate, there is always next year and it'll probably take that long for you to find a suitably miserable-faced subject to suit the miserable-faced judging panel of TW.

    Hmm! I guess mine was serious but not miserable. Not to worry - all down to experience. ;)

    No luck for me either.

    This is the photograph I entered in to the comp.

    I guess Paul Kaye looked too happy in the photograph and wasn't stroking any pets! Oh well... next year... Might have to get a photograph of him looking fk'd off with the world and tearing the head off a white fluffy rabbit

    Hard luck guys. Maybe next year and I might even enter it myself then.
