Monthly Print Competition (Special Assignment: FOOD)

Monthly Print Competition

Remember to bring your annual dues ($35). You will need to be current to include your prints.

You can now sign up and pay your dues online using this link.

You may bring up to 2 matted prints to the competition and enter them into the seven categories.

This month our competition will be judged by Kathy Adams Clark.

After the competition, folks meet at the La Madeline to "critique the critiques".
10001 Westheimer Rd., Houston, Texas

Competition Overview
We divide our prints into 7 categories:

Bronze - New members
Bronze Black & White
Bronze Color
Silver - Member with at least 1 year in HPS
Silver Black & White
Silver Color
Gold - Members with at least 2 years in HPS
Gold Black & White
Gold Color
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.

      Yes, please come. Hearing the judges input on why some prints are more successful than others is very instructional, whether you have your own prints or not.
