The Photo of the Month Challenge for February is open and ready for entries. This month there is not a theme, but look for themes to be added in the next month or two. The rules are simple and listed below. Please take a few minutes to read the rules. If you have any questions, please email [address removed]
This contest would not be possible without the generous support of Cafe Impressions Gallery and its owner (and FCCP member) Jorge Blanco. Jorge is an accomplished photographer and a strong supporter of FCCP.
The three judges are picked on a monthly basis from a select group of FCCP Members and non-members. The judges generally include professional photographers, retired photographers, photography instructors and other qualified members. Judges are not eligible for the challenge the month they judge and are not permitted to enter that month. Judges generally remain anonymous, but a list of judges is available upon request.
Florida Center for Creative Photography dues paying members may submit three (3) entries each month. FCCP members that have not paid their dues may enter only one (1) image each month. You can learn more about FCCP Membership and the benefits of being a dues paying member here.
