May Print Competition

15 May 2017 8:25 PM | Beth Genengels (Administrator)


May 10, 2017      Digital Image Competition

      We had 113 entries from 21 makers. The breakdown is as follows:

77 Portraits     21 Illustrative 3 Wedding    3 Commercial      9 Artist

21 B&W from the above categories.

We no longer enter physical entries, but had 113 digital entries. 

The judges discussed many of the images as Challenges. This is where we learn the most from the judges’ opinions.

We had 67 that scored 80 or above (President’s Award) 67/113 or 59%. 

We had 16 that scored 85 – 89, and 1 scored above 90.

I want to thank my great print crew: Peter Yu, Megan Drane and Beth Genengels. Thanks to Peter Yu for running the new print handling and scoring system.

Thanks to the Judges: Kathryn Northcott, Sabina Cavalli and Bruce Van Pelt.


Bruce Van Pelt, Chairman
