Another year, another e-mail rejection letter. I didn't get into the 52nd Society of Illustrators Annual. Frustrating.
4,600 entries and 418 accepted pieces, so it's not like I was expecting to get in. But every year, when I see the e-mail in my inbox from the Society, there's a brief moment when I hope for the best. Then I don't see the word "Congratulations," and I realize it's another rejection. It's like you have to be a big name to get in, but you can't become a big name unless you get in.
There's still the American Illustration Show and Spectrum to submit to. So I'll try again, but I could really do without all these entry fees ...
