2016 November Photo Contest: Water

  • November 29 · 11:45 PM

The theme for NOVEMBER is WATER.

The interpretation of what you believe is WATER, is completely up to you. But the creativity is all yours

The November contest will be open for entries beginning now and runs until midnight Tuesday, November 29, 2016.


The date this event is scheduled for is just a place holder for the deadline of the Monthly Photo Contest!

We are NOT meeting anywhere to shoot!


The November Guest Judge is TBD!


Monthly Contest/Assignment

This group revolves around our shared enthusiasm for taking pictures. You can only get better when you practice your photography. To get people shooting on a regular basis, we developed a contest/assignment monthly event which is open to everyone. Get creative and have fun!  Participating in the assignments and posting your photo side by side with others may help you to decide to enter it in the contest

Contest Dues

• When you RSVP for the monthly contest an option to pay the $12 contest dues will appear.

• To participate in any of the contests, click the link “Chip in”  button to make your payment. (This link is found on the left sidebar, it's GREEN)

Contest dues are annual, are not prorated and expire at the end of December of the current year. Paying your contest dues early in the year means you get to participate in more of the monthly contests! The contest prizes are awarded at the end of the year from the money collected from contest dues. More people participating means more money for the prizes at the end of the year.

FYI on Monthly Contest Payment

We keep a running account of who has paid. Those who RSVP for the contest and who don’t pay will be considered participants in the assignment and will have their photos marked “exhibition only”.  If you can't remember if you paid in 2016, please email Teri or Kristal in advance. We can look it up for you.

Monthly Contest/Assignment  Rules
• You must have taken the image you submit yourself. We know this should be obvious. No restored photos, Photoshop compilations or creations where you are not the maker of all the images.

• Your image must have been taken within the last twelve months for the monthly contest

• You may not enter a photo that has been entered in a previous monthly contest and won 1st, 2nd or honorable mention. 

• Only 1 entry per month per member. You can post multiple images, but pick one for the contest and label all others as "EXHIBITION ONLY."

Posting Your Entries

• Click the "PHOTO" tab on the navigation bar at the top of the Meetup site.

• In the "PHOTO" tab, there will be a PHOTO ALBUM labeled with the month and topic of the contest. Upload your entry there.
• Size for regular images - 1024 pixels on the longest side, 96 dpi

Size for panorama images - 1600 pixels on the longest side, 96 dpi

 • After you upload it, a minute or so will pass before you can see the image. At this point, give your image a Creative Title. (If you leave this part to us, it might not have a very creative title!)


Contest Themes for 2016

November - Water

December - The Holidays

Monthly Contest Eligibility
• Payment of the $12 contest dues qualifies you for the monthly contests

• Your images must have been taken in the past 12 months. That's it!

Annual  Contest Eligibility Qualifying for the annual contest requires:

• Payment of the $12 contest dues.

• Participation in at least one monthly contest between January and November of the contest year prior to entering the annual contest. This is to discourage "ringers" from joining in December and claiming cash prizes.

    This month was a great theme and received so many awesome images. I don't envy Kristal the difficult task of judging. I learned a lot seeing all the different compositions and interpretations.
