I was contacted by Dave Bown Projects, davebownprojects.com/about.html
to enter a contest with very good prize money and recognition. I researched it and discovered it was legit, and that many people had given it great reviews, and it was a well received contest. the fees are reasonable and in line with other competitions and shows I have entered. I read through their website and liked what they had to say. So I applied and got back a very nice response saying they liked these two paintings. Let’s see where it goes next!
