Good Morning ACC Members and Happy February!

The other day I was asked about the Club Events Contest at the end of the year, and it got me thinking.  Now is actually a good time to start planning and prepping for the May 15, 2019 contest event.  Now, I’m not talking about printing and mounting (unless you want to do that this early),I’m talking about taking some time and going back through your photos, marking which ones you want to use, and process them awhile.  Save them in a folder and print at a later date.  Most times, we all wait until the last minute and end up only submitting a couple or none at all when we really do have more we could of entered!

Now – for those of you who are new to the club, or veterans of the club who have never submitted before – The Club Events Contest is any event starting from last year’s end of year banquet through April 2019 field trip.  (Below is a list of events that count for this year’s contest).  You may submit one digital, one monochrome print and one color print FOR EACH EVENT!! That’s right – EACH EVENT!!  That’s why it’s always a good idea to plan ahead!    Example – If you attended ALL 22 events – you could submit 66 images!  If you only attended one event – you could submit 3 images! 

There will be two “Best in Show” awards that night – One Novice – One Unlimited.  Each award wins a free club membership for the 2019-2020 year!

And now’s the perfect time with the cold weather! Make yourself a cup of hot coffee, tea or cocoa, sit back and start reliving your fun outings throughout this past year. 

Looking forward to seeing all the photos entered this year! Here is your list:
