See everyone Monday!
A print table will be set up for prints to be brought in for viewing on competition nights. NHCC members may bring in any size, matted or unmatted printed photographs to be viewed by members at the monthly meetings. Scott Hudson, MaryEllen O'Donnell and Margo Bury will "man" this print table. They will put out red solo cups and hand out voting slips so that each member can place their vote into the cup corresponding to the photo that they want for member's choice that month. A ribbon will be awarded for member's choice for prints each month.
NHCC IS still competing in NECCC interclub print competition this month. Scott will be collecting prints (11x14) matted to 16x20 and/or asking digital makers to print images competed during the year for entry into the interclub competition.
NHCC is also hosting the Spring interclub print competition
Remember that NHCC has dropped the print category. The board discussed combining class B and A for prints, but in looking at the list of print makers, there were only two people in class A and one person completing class B and moving up to class A that would be competing next year. The decision to drop prints was not easily made and generated lots of discussion at the meeting. Holding a competition with 3-4 people is not as meaningful and eliminating the time for print setup, take down, scoring and comments will allow us to have more time for comments on the other image competitions. We have decreased the total number of images entered each month from 6 to 5 so hopefully that too will leave more time for comments. Membership enjoying changing the competitive slideshow competition to a show and tell, hopefully changing prints to more of a show and tell will encourage more people to share photographs!
