- Entries will be collected and voted on at the
designated social, usually the October Social.
- Photos MUST be landscape orientation,
of GOOD resolution (min. 1 megapixel) and suitable
to be cropped to 11" x 8.5" size.
- Each entry MUST be submitted
as both a HARD COPY for viewing and a full
resolution ELECTRONIC IMAGE FILE. Photos that
are not accompanied by an electronic file on a memory stick
will not be allowed into the contest. All entries will be viewed
by the Photo Contest Committee on a laptop to ensure that they
meet the minimum quality standard of 1 megapixel in size and
are in landscape orientation prior to the start of the contest.
- Only one entry is allowed per membership if there
are enough entries to fill the calendar.
- In the event that there are fewer than the required
number of photos submitted, each membership may submit a 2nd

will automatically win, as will the required number of 2nd pick
photos with the highest votes.
- Members must be present and their dues
paid-up to submit photos and to vote at the contest.
