2018-19 Competition Information Revised

Saturday, September 8, 2018 - 11:07pm

It's time to be thinking about submitting images for the first competition coming up in October! The Board has made new changes to the competition schedule based on feedback from members. Like last year, one category will be unavailable for submissions every month. Makers can submit 2 projected images in any category. In addition, each maker may submit up to 2 prints (see the schedule below).

The People Category in April 2019 will be human interest for images taken during Park and Rec supported activities (Oktoberfest, Rec Fest, Polar Plunge, etc.).
Challenge subjects are unchanged.

Please keep reading to find the attached Competition Schedule and Competition Basics documents. Competition Basics covers most of the rules regarding competitions in a single document.
