Competition Only Meeting, September 5, 2019

“Abandonment Issues” – Mary Day Long

The club members have expressed a desire to have all their submitted photographs critiqued, so this meeting has no speaker in order to allow time for these critiques.  In the past few meetings, only one photograph from each photographer was critiqued, but the judge will critique all photographs in this meeting, time permitting.

This is a free, public meeting so invite a buddy! but we encourage all to join the club if you regularly visit.  Because then you get to enter our competitions and participate in other club activities!

Monthly Competition

Submission Deadline: Midnight, Saturday, August 31, 2019

September’s digital competition theme is “Seeing Double“.  Only NAPfS members can submit up to two images of your choice, provided the images were taken no earlier than 2 years ago.

The club members have expressed a desire to have ALL their submitted photographs critiqued, so this meeting has no speaker in order to allow A FULL MEETING for these critiques. The Competition Committee will introduce a 3-member jury panel to critique and score the September submissions. Each month the jury will be recruited from the club’s most winning and experienced members. If this change proves popular, the upcoming 3rd Thursdays will have a guest speaker presentation and/or tutorials.

Please review the new guidelines and select the class that you most closely qualify for. For more info, read this post about classes.

The monthly NAPƒS digital competition is meant to be fun, inspirational, and educational. The judging and associated critiques are positive, supportive, and will be a useful learning tool.

You must join NAPƒS to take part in 2019 competitions. The cost of membership is only $24, and your annual contribution is used 100% in support of club operations and activities.

Read the rules, then submit your competition images!
