Dear Club Reps,
Last year I asked you to help me recruit monochrome images from which NECCC could choose its entry for the monochrome category of the 2011 Council Challenge competition. The support of you and your membership was outstanding providing a body of work containing almost 200 images. From that we were able to choose an entry that won first place in the monochrome category. In fact NECCC also won the color category and was in second place in the print category. NECCC also won the competition overall. A big thank you to all who supplied monochrome images. If you would like to see a slide show of the winning images go to http://psa-photo.org/clubs-and-councils/councils-of-clubs/council-s-challenge/2011-council-s-challenge-slide-show/.
We are now planning to try and replicate our success for 2012. As in previous years we will choose our color category entry from the winning and HM images from our three 2011-2012 interclub competitions. If there are any monochrome images that win or receive an HM in one of the 3 competitions we will consider them for possible entry in the monochrome category. However, since very few monochrome images are entered in the interclub competition we are again asking you and your members to supply monochrome images to be considered for the competition. The instructions are as follows:
Due Date: May 1, 2012 (that will give us several weeks to make the final selections)
Where to send: Send entries to NECCC@optonline.net (put "Monochrome Images" in the subject line). You may gather and submit images as a group for your club or your members may send them in individually.
What: Send one or two images (no more) per person (we can only submit one image per person)
Naming: In the file name include the maker's name, the maker's club name, and the image title
Sizing: Size the image to no more than 1024 pixels horizontal and no more than 768 pixels vertical.
If there are any questions, please ask.
