Here is the judge's evaluation card.
My entry number was: #00447
Supposedly the judging is done "blindly" so that no one knows whose honey is whose; but one lady standing there suggested to me that they occasionally look at the names on the tags of the bottles; hopefully, AFTER the judging!
The fellow who won first place has a great last name; it is Winpigler. It sounds like a cartoon character to me. So, it's fitting he should win, I guess.
My bee photo also got a ribbon-4th. It seems, even though the rules don't say so, that if you frame the photo you do better. I only mounted mine. I still think it's a great photo! Shows the pollen sac nicely on this girl in the cherry blossom!
So, a bit frustrated, but I'll go outside the building and eat another apple dumpling with vanilla ice cream on top,... the 2nd best reason I come to the fair!
