The North Shore salon is regarded as one of the premier salons to enter during the year. It attracts a large number of entrants and as such the criteria for making it past selection are very high. Getting an acceptance is in an achievement in itself.

After last years dismal effort (of zero acceptances out of 8 submissions)  I thought long and hard about entering it this year. However when I discovered that they were reverting to original categories including one for people I decided to try again, but for the first time I would submit prints and not digital.

I was pleased that I did as not only did I get both images accepted, but my image of Wilf scored a Honours.

I subsequently found out that 2169 images were entered from 245 photographers.
