Paid Members’ Photo Contest

January meeting is Thursday the 19th from 7-8:30 pm in the Community Room of the Lyndon House. This will be our Fourth Annual Photo Contest with cash prizes. This contest is for APG members who have paid their 2017 dues. Please arrive by 6:30 if you plan on paying your 2017 dues at the meeting.

::  RULES OF THE CONTEST  ::

  • For members who have paid their 2017 dues.
  • One or two printed images allowed per paid member.
  • Images must be 5×7 prints or larger (no upper limit), framed, matted, gallery wrap, metal print with mount, printed with white border around the image, or just tacked on to a mat – anything that visually separates the print from the table.
  • Printed images are brought to the meeting and taken home at the end of the meeting – images cannot be stored for later pick up.
  • 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 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 shows, or shown at an APG meeting are acceptable.
  • If photographer’s name/watermark appears on the image, mat, or frame IT WILL BE DISQUALIFIED. You will be allowed to cover it up with a post-it® note, etc, but it must be completely and opaquely covered.
  • “Wow” is an image which stops you because it is unusual or otherwise noteworthy. It can be a grab shot or one where patience won, or took special preparation and the image succeeds. Heavily manipulated images count.
  • Jurors will be APG members present at the meeting.
  • Cash awards will be presented at the meeting. Only one cash prize per member. If you win the point count for more than one prize, the lower of the two prizes will revert down to the work with the next highest point count.
  • Winning entries will be digitally photographed and projected on the screen for Q&A and comments.
