Fall Annual Photo Contest

Paid Member’s Photo Contest with Cash Prizes!

Rules must be followed in order to be eligible:

  • Open to 2015 Paid Members Only. You can pay at the beginning of the meeting
  • Photographs have to be taken between June 1, 2015 and Sept. 8, 2015
  • Up to two images per 2015-paid APG member
  • Minimum size 5 x 7. No maximum size
  • Framed or quick mounted on a plain white background — e.g. foam core, mounting board or poster board
  • Any photo with photographer’s ID/watermark will be disqualified
  • All works will be judged by APG members’ votes at the meeting
  • Only one prize will be awarded per member (the highest award)
  • You cannot vote for your own image(s)

First prize $150, 2nd $100, two Honorable Mentions awarding $50 each.

There will also be a new prize category: “WOW!” awarding one $50 prize. Wow is an image which stops you because it is unusual or otherwise noteworthy without the benefit of manipulation. It can be a grab shot or one where patience won, or took special preparation and the image succeeds.
