Monthly Competition Themes

Each month an outside professional critiques and scores members’ photos entered in that month’s contest. Entries are in three categories – Color, Black and White, and Artistic. In Color, there are two classes – Class B for newcomers and Class A for advanced.

Scores are tallied and awards given at the end of the year, including the coveted “Photographer of the Year” award.

At the Christmas party, everyone brings “their best” ribbon winner for entry as the “Photograph of the Year.”

The themes for 2017 are for all categories and classes

January – Open
February – Frozen
March – Bokeh – Shallow Depth of Field
April – Open
May – Red
June – Macro
July – Open
August – People in the City
September – Portrait
October – Open
November – Motion
December – Your Best Photo of the Year – Showcased at the Christmas Party

Images that do not follow the theme will not be judged. The judge will make the determination on images that meet the theme and ones that don’t.
