Essays & Portfolios # 2 (9:00 PM EDT)
Essays & Portfolios (member showing of their own images)
By popular demand, we are going to have another Essays & Portfolios
This is a friendly, non-competition event.
The photographers of the entries will remain anonymous until the end of the event.
There will be no introductions, talk through or other identifying information by the author or anyone else.
We will run Essays #1 and #2 together.
At the end we will have a Q&A session and story telling from the photographer. Photographers, please stay behind.
The goal of this friendly competition shall be fun and participation, rather than trophies, aggregate points etc. There shall be a single class of entry.
Photo essays are to relate a cohesive story line or theme through the use of up to a maximum of eight (8) images. Members may enter as many as two (2) essays. If, however, two (2) are entered, they should be unrelated.
Portfolios (a maximum of one (1) per member) are to be strictly limited to a maximum of fifteen (15) images. They should present a cross-section of the member's best work, i.e., as one might prepare to impress a prospective buyer.
The judges for this competition shall be those members in attendance who have not entered images.
Since there will not be an accumulation of aggregate scores or Master Class points for these images, the photographer is welcome to submit photographs from previous print or slide competitions or those they plan on entering in future print or slide competitions. Remember, all winning photographs from this event will not be included in the year-end judging unless they win in the regular print or slide competitions.
