Bill Schoon, Contest Committee Chairperson, has chosen the following categories for the monthly contests in 2022. Note the changes in voting strategies. These categories are also posted on the website under the CONTESTS link.
LAPC Monthly Contest Categories-2022
Jan – No Meeting
Feb – Favorite Photo from 2021
March – Food Photography
April – Repetitive Shapes/Lines or Leading Lines
May – The Open Road (2022 State Fair Theme)
June – Snapshot (Photo caught not planned)
July – Creatures Great & Small
Aug – Light Painting/Flash Photography
Sept – Landscapes/Rivers/Lakes etc.
Oct – Sunrise/Sunset
Nov – Fall Colors
Dec – Christmas/Santa (If we have a meeting)
These categories are meant to be very broad and open for interpretation. Each person may enter 2 prints for that month’s contest.
Voting will take place during the regular break during each monthly meeting. Each person will be given two poker chips, one white and one colored. Each white chip will be valued at 2 points and each colored chip will be valued at 1 point. The white chip will be used to vote for their first-place choice and the colored chip will be used to vote for their second-place choice. After the voting is finished the points for each entry will be totaled. The highest point total will be awarded First Place, the next Second Place and the next Third Place. The point total will be noted on the back of each entry in such a way as to not damage the print.
Prizes, if any, will be determined by the LAPC Executive Board.
