There were over 500 entries, so I was pretty excited that mine was chosen. This year's exhibit is truly one of the best collections of collages I've seen in a very long time, even if I do say so myself, so please check it out. A couple of examples to whet your appetite:
Jan Filarski, The Dots Ran Away
Mike Church, Overtime
Dick Allowatt, Orbit
As if that wasn't enough good fortune, I was recently notified that my work will be featured in ArtBuzz, the 2014 Collection - a hard cover book of work by the winners of their annual juried fine art search, in which I was awarded 2nd place for mixed media.
