In early January I kicked off a ticket giveaway to (3) three Epson Print Academy events in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles. The results are in from a very random selection process… namely a number on paper, for each comment/trackback to my original post Epson Print Academy – I’m Giving Away Tickets, thrown into a bowl.

Given my passion for quality photography prints it is certainly a project that I will be running again in the future.
