This month’s photo contest should be really fun for everyone. It can be in the studio or you can use natural light.

The theme is:
Still Life.

A painting, picture, or photograph of inanimate objects.
stilllife still'-life' (stĭl'līf') adj.

We will use the same criteria for judging last month’s contest. Everyone will be a judge for a popular vote and we will pick one person to be the head judge who will also critique each print submitted. There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place print as well as a Judge’s choice print.

The scoring will be done slightly different this time so that one person cannot receive 1st and 3rd place. We will assign the following point values for the popular vote: 1st place vote = 5 pts, 2nd place vote = 3 pts and 3rd place vote = 1 pt and the following points for the head judge’s vote: 1st place = 10 pts, 2nd place 6 pts and 3rd place = 2 pts. We will tally the points received for each print and award the top three highest scoring prints.

The deadline for entering the contest will be March 24th at Midnight. Please email your entry to It should be in a 2x3 format no larger than a 4x6 @300 dpi. You will need to bring a print to the March 26th meeting. It should be 8x10, 8.5x11 or 8x12. It needs to have your name and image details on the back. You should title the print as well. Remember, the presentation of your print can help or hurt you.
