January’s digital photography competition theme is “Oldies”.  The normal 2 year restriction for this open themed competition does not apply.  Dig into the archives and let’s see your favorites!  You may submit any of your images which have not previously won any NAPfS competition awards.

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

A reminder – you must join NAPƒS or renew your membership to take part in 2020 competitions. The cost of membership is only $24 for renewal, or $36 to join (until January 1, 2020), and your annual contribution is used 100% in support of club operations and activities.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all members. We have had a growing and improving year, and we all look forward to 2020 with hope and enthusiasm. Thank you for being in the club!
