Here is the info for the upcoming competition meeting to be held online on 04/17/2020 at 7:00 pm:
The competition subject is “The Unknown”. Present an image that engages the viewer in a mystery. Ideally your image should tell a story or part of a story that leaves the viewer with some question(s) in mind. Just to be clear, this is quite different from an abstract photo. An abstract photo can stand on it’s own as a pleasing visual arrangement of colors and/or patterns without necessarily telling a story or leaving questions in the viewers mind.
Please observe the submission deadline of midnight, Wednesday April 15th so that we have time to prepare everything in advance for the meeting on Friday.

We are making a few improvements to our virtual meetings for members. First, we are increasing the number of submissions that you can make. You are now allowed to enter up to a maximum of 3 digital entries. Here is how that breaks down: If you enter only one image it may either assigned or general. If you enter two images they may both be assigned, or they may both be general, or they can be split as one assigned and one general. If you enter three images they must be split as either two assigned and one general, or two general and one assigned.
Second, since no one needs to drive home from the meeting we are extending our targeted ending time to 9:30 to accommodate the additional entries. Anyone is welcome to exit the meeting at any time they wish as this will not pose a distraction or cause an interruption to the proceedings. We don’t want to rush through the critiques.
Third, board members are being given moderator privileges during the meeting. Please observe our typical meeting etiquette. You are always free to comment and participate but please keep it on topic if possible and avoid creating visual video distractions or unnecessary audio distractions if possible. Please be aware that we can all hear extraneous noise in your environment such as other people, nearby televisions, you typing on your keyboard etc. Any board member can now anonymously mute your audio or blank your video temporarily if they deem it necessary to maintain the flow of the meeting.
