Hello everyone! Stacy Carlson here. I want to thank everyone who has contributed this last year to the digital competition. It’s been exciting to see the number of entries increase each month. It has been equally exciting to see new members participating and entering. Thank you.
When I took over the chair for the competition in August, I really wanted to find a way to recognize our talent in a new way. With the approval of the board, the local competition was created and I’m excited to be a part of the first annual Local Digital Competition Awards ceremony!
The judging took place earlier this month. The judges were asked to judge the photos who placed 1-HM last round of competitions. They voted on Best of Themed, Creative, PhotoJournalism, Nature and Pictorial. I will be announcing the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners of this judging, as well as 3 honor mentions for each category.
There will also be awards given to 3 photographers who scored highest for Photographer of the Year. Everyone who placed 3 or more photo during the last round of competitions was entered. The overall average of all their winning photos is what determined their placement.
You can see all the incredible winning photos on the club’s Flickr Page
