GNPA participates in “NG3C Annual Shootout”
It’s Back! NG3C Shootout 2018 A few years back, the GNPA won 1st Place! Let’s go back and capture the First Place Plaque again. When? Saturday, November 3, 2018 Where? Reinhardt University in Waleska, GA 30183 (North of Canton about 7 miles) How? Register as soon as possible so we can form our teams. Include all members of GNPA from all chapters. Remember, this is ONLY Open to GNPA Members! Why? Obviously for individual and club recognition, BUT… It’s Just Fun and stretches our skills as photographers. Forces us to get out of our comfort zones. It really works our creativity (no idea what topic will be beforehand), forces us to see things differently and we are on the clock as soon as we learn the topics/categories. Forces us to learn to shot and get your minds image right when you are taking the photograph, because you will NOT have hours or even minutes to much post-process your image. So, it’s creative and fast paced…but it can a real HOOT! And, you might just surprise yourself and place! Individual prizes including $$$ Gift Cards will be awarded determined by the judges Fees: Don’t worry, the entry fee will be paid by GNPA for members for all chapters, but we need your registration by ASAP. We need to put together each chapters’ teams quickly. NG3C will be asking for our lists very soon. Let’s try and have a record number of participants. Key Tentative Points, more details to follow from NG3C soon. • Currently 10 other clubs will be participating, so it could easily be 100+ photographers. • Teams will be formed as in the past, one for each of 5 topics or categories. • Random selection early the day of the Shootout for the 5 topics or categories. • Teams will ONLY have a few hours to shoot, process, and turn in the best 10 team entries.
