At the October 2017 competition meeting, I will make a motion for a vote to change Poly’s competition rules and return to a single category for open competition as we had in 2016 and prior years.
For the past nine monthly competitions, we’ve split our open competition entries into two categories: category one where “all adjustments must appear natural” with compositing disallowed, and category two in which “there are no limits.”
The competition change was approved as a trial for 2017 only. We’ve tried it and it isn’t working. I’ll explain why later in this article.
Poly Photo Club members, Michele McCain and Ernesto Corte, will be exhibiting images in the art museum at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido.
This is a group exhibition entitled “Photography Expanded: Distinct Approaches” which will include works by a select group of California photographers and will highlight their unique styles of photography.
The opening reception will be held on Friday, September 29th. There is more information on the reception below.
