Category Archives: Competition Results

Below are the monthly photo competition results. NAPfS hosts a monthly live critique photo competition. Each month club member submits one or two images. Photographers compete in one of two classes, class 1 – novice or class 2 – advanced. The images are presented anonymously to the judge during the club meeting. Our guest speaker or another qualified judge critiques each image and then picks winners. Twenty-five percent of images entered win awards.

Photographers also earn points toward the year long photographer of the year competition. The photographer who received the most total point over the course of the year is awarded the title of Photographer of the Year.

Any photo receiving an award is eligible for the People Choice Awards. At the photo club’s end of year meeting in December, members vote on their favorite images from monthly club competition.

To enter the monthly competition, join NAPfS and then visit the competition submission page to submit.
