The Stevie Wonder lyrics “Isn’t she lovely, isn’t she wonderful…” come to mind when I see the February cover of Avenue Magazine. She is indeed lovely, and Ms. Janina Scarmon makes a wonderful My Precious Queen. In the magazine, you can read the story of how Agnes Finney, designer and owner of My Precious, came up with the idea for the competition. You’ll see some wonderful photos of Queen Janina, and read the words of Roland Zepp as he tells the story.
Stop by My Precious to get your issue. While you’re there, click on the sign that gives directions for entering the February competition. There is a competition each month, so if you miss February’s deadline of the 20th, you can always enter in March. If you don’t win, don’t give up. The entries each month are judged by a panel who have their own opinions about what makes the photos the best. Study the pictures of the winners, see if you can figure out why they won, and try again.
