SFCC Fall Photo Competition

Get ready for the Fall SFCC photo contest. Start looking for those special images that you want to enter. You have until November 26th to enter your digital pictures.

The contest will be held on December 3rd at the library. The results will be announced at December 17th at our Fall Club Banquet at Pizza Ranch on 41st Street.

For this competition all paid members are invited to participate. Some members may feel they can’t compete because they are inexperienced or have deficient photography equipment. There’s no excuse not to give it a try, Great pictures have come from inexperienced photographers with just a “point and shoot” camera.

There are two digital categories:  A. Digital Color = (c)   B. Digital Black & White = (b)

  • Each club member can enter one image per category.
  • Here is the size and format requirements for the your pictures into the contests:

A. 1024 pixels on the longest side

B. File-size to be less than 500KB

C. sRGB color

Each image should be named in the following manner:

The file name to begin with a “c” (for color) or “b” (for black and white)_your name_Title of photo.jpg. For example: c_Gary Bartel_Lion Pride.jpg.

Please email your photos to Gary Bartel at garyabartel@gmail.com or bring your digital pictures on a “USB thumb drive” to one of our next meetings. You can send me your images whenever you want but not later than the November 26th .

After November the 26th, I will do my best to include them. 

As in the past, judging will be done by all the members attending the meeting on December 3.
