Monthly Print Competition
This month's Special Assignment is your interpretation of "Seen from Above."
You can see all of the upcoming Special Assignments here.
For some basics on matting your work, click here.
You may bring up to 2 matted prints to the competition and enter them into one of the seven categories.
After the competition, folks meet at the La Madeline to "critique the critiques".
10001 Westheimer Rd., Houston, Texas
We divide our prints into 7 categories:
Bronze - New members
Bronze Black & White
Silver - Member with at least 1 year in HPS
Silver Black & White
Gold - Members with at least 2 years in HPS
Gold Black & White
Special Assignment - Assigned each month (Includes all levels)
If one of the categories has less than 3 prints, it will be moved up to the next higher level.
Each ribbon counts towards the following:
1. progression to the next category for the following year,
2. participation in the annual print competition,
2. the Excellence in Photography annual award, and
3. inclusion in exhibitions during the year.
Our club is somewhat unique relative to other clubs in that our competitions are judged by outside photographers who not only pick the winners in each category, but also give a short critique of each submitted photograph. Each of our club members values this critical feedback so they may improve.
