What do you notice about the ribbons in the snapshot below?

How many “big” blue ribbons do you see? . . . the two that happen to say “Best Youth Award” and “Best Of Show”? Two, right? Exactly! Two. And they belong to the only two Lenspiration PRO Member who entered the Addison County Fair!

So, how did they do it?

It all started with a question over a month ago on the PRO Q&A Forum. @hannah asks,

I am planning on entering a photo competition, and was wondering if I could ask advice on some pictures, and if you could give me better ideas, or different critique on them, etc.?

The discussion went on for a good while. The PRO members and I chimed in with our thoughts and we went back and forth on several different photos. @hannah’s sister, @emilym, jumped in with some of her own pictures too. I gave my thoughts and recommendations but left the decisions up to them.

I left it there and moved on to other things. The rest was in their hands.

But then a few days later I got this email:

I won the adult best photograph award! We’ve gone from red or white (bad) ribbons to Best of Show. 🙂

What a thrill it was to hear this! It wasn’t just one of the sisters . . . it was both of them that placed. “This is the first time I’ve ever won an award at the fair”, @Hannah writes on the Q&A Forum in a followup comment. Could it be a coincidence? Perhaps. But I don’t think so. Their diligent study and application of the PRO training over the past year is paying off.
