January, 2014 Meeting

January meeting is Thursday the 16th from 7-8:30 pm in the Community Room of the Lyndon House. We are trying something new: a special photograph competition with cash prizes. This contest is for APG members who have paid either their 2013 or 2014 dues. This date is before entries are due to the Annual Lyndon House Juried Art Show so you can get a good feeling for how people react to your images.
  • For members who have paid either their 2013 OR 2014 dues. (See Membership Dues below.)
  • One or two printed images per paid member only.
  • Printed images are brought to the meeting and taken home at the end of the meeting – images cannot be stored for later pick up. (Images brought on a flash drive will be for critique only and will not be judged for prizes. See below.)
  • If you cannot attend, a friend can bring your images on your behalf and will be given the prize money to give to you if you win.
  • Images must be 5×7 or larger (no upper limit), framed, matted, OR just tacked on to a matte so there is a solid background around your image.
  • Images can be recent or older, but must be taken by the member.
  • Images must not have been juror accepted in ANY show, anywhere. Images presented at a gallery, or market for sale, or APG show, or shown at an APG meetingare acceptable.
  • If photographer’s name appears on the image, it MUST be covered up. No exceptions.
  • Jurors will be APG members present at the meeting.
  • Cash awards will be presented at the meeting.
  • Winning entries will be digitally photographed and projected on the screen for Q&A and comments.
  • For everyone: there won’t be a creative challenge but anyone with any image they want projected to have the group critique, bring it on a flash drive. e.g. can’t decide between two images before submission to the Annual Lyndon House Juried Art Show.
  • Questions? Please send them to Tony at  tonyamdur@charter.net
