The Ozone Zone International Photo Competition which had its beginnings in Canada, this year is run from Dominica as the host country. The jury consisting of local and foreign artists/photographers will select the winners from many international submissions. This is one of most popular international photo competitions due to significant cash awards, very low entry fees, and high quality of entries.
The competition offers four sections, and runs under RPS, IUP, FIAP and PSA patronage. It puts Dominica on the map of international art and photography events. “We hope to see Dominica as a destination for photographers of the world, expanding tourism and engaging many fine local photographers in workshops, tours, and so on” - says Margaret Gajek, competition's chair person. “This competition makes many photographers interested in our island”.
“We had a really hard task last year to select best images” - says Derek Galon, MA, FRPS, FOPS – head of the jury, a Canadian art photographer now living in Dominica. “ This year, due to extra patronage from Royal Photographic Society (UK) and IUP (union of photographers from Asia) we expect many more fine entries.”

This is my first experience of crowdfunding – a type of online sponsorship for a project (mine was publishing my first novel). It is likely to be my only experience.
Normally you hear about the projects that overfunded. But there are many who don’t get what they hoped for, even if they ask for less than they need to raise.
This is the story of one whose corvid landed with less than it needed in its beak. (Read my first piece for an explanation of why it’s crow funding).
Crowdfunding is oversaturated and it’s hard to get all the backing you need, even if you follow the guidelines and make a campaign you’re really proud of that involved most of your waking hours. And some of that’s to do with the crowdfunding system, as I’ll explain.
My views are proudly salmonesque – they go against the popular tide. Or air stream. I hope that other flagging crows might feel that they fly in formation and that disappointment does not equal failure.
