I have just dipped my toe into international exhibitions and salons and decided to enter a couple endorsed by the Photographic Society of America (PSA). Specifically I entered the Vidin Spring Circuit which consisted of salons in Bulgaria and Serbia.
I have heard that these international salons can be a little bit easier to succeed in than the BPE exhibitions that I am familiar with – their acceptance rate is in the 30-35% range as opposed to the British 20-25%. But, I certainly wasn’t expecting the success that I did get – Gold, Silver and Bronze medals plus a an assortment of ribbons and ‘Honourable Mentions’! some of the images that I used were being aired for the first time and I entered them alongside some tried and tested images so that I could assess their relative merits. The medal winning images are shown below…

And finally two images that received Honourable Mentions alongside those above.
