Photography is fun! More people are enjoying the hobby and business of photography than ever before. Today it is possible to take and view instantly your work without having to wait for film to be processed.
There are numerous categories which an individual can enter their work in the State Fair. No matter what your photographic interest is, or what equipment you are using you can produce an entry for the Utah State Fair that will be enjoyed by those visiting the Photography Division. Curtis Parker, supervisor of the Utah State Fair Photography Division explains, "The photos entered into the fair inspire and challenge others to take up the hobby of photography. Even if you are not involved in taking pictures, viewing them is an enjoyable pastime. Since digital pictures can be processed in Photoshop it is amazing to see the quality and versatility of the finished product.
Curtis Parker of the Utah State Fair notes, "As the doors open to the public, it’s a joy to watch their expression when they find a ribbon on their print, but whether one finds a ribbon or not, the comment I hear most is 'I’ll be back next year’.”
