Themes are intentionally open ended. You can be creative in their interpretation, however, the competition judge has absolute authority to disqualify an image for not meeting the theme.
Your image needs to match the theme visually without explanation. If you’re too clever, the judge may not get it.

December – The 4th Annual NAPƒS Awards Ceremony & Year-end Potluck
There is no competition in December. The last meeting of the year is dedicated to the 4th Annual NAPƒS Awards Ceremony & Year-end Potluck, where the club’s Pfotographer of the Year, People’s Choice, and Critic’s Choice awards will be presented.
The Pfotographer of the Year, our NAPƒS member who amassed the most points in our 2019 monthly competitions, will be announced.
Members attending the December meeting will pick their fave shot of 2019, the People’s Choice Award, from all competition winners via paper ballot.
We’ll also have one of our 2019 speakers present a Critic’s Choice Award, selected from all 2019 competition winners.
This is a mostly social gathering and pot luck. It’s a great way to support fellow members. And, well, food. Yum!
