***No Second Meeting this Month***

Just a reminder to members and a notice to visitors: there is no meeting this week on Thursday December 18th.  Everyone has family obligations, events and dinners, shopping, and plenty of other things to do at this time of year.

Members only: Please do remember to RSVP Bob Dempsey for our Awards Dinner on the 15th of January 2015.  I wish all of you new cameras and gear for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Honors Night Assignments and Open Entries for 2015

 Bay Area Photo Club

2015 Assignments and Open Entries 

Here is the list of Honors Night assignments for 2015.  As always assignment images must be shot during the 3 months preceding the Honors Night monthly meeting that they are listed for.


January            Architecture

February          Out of Context

March             Winter

April                Environmental Portrait

May                 Performance

June                 Danger

July                  Landscape

Also remember that in 2015 we will be scoring the Open entries as well and awarding a prize at the end of the year.  

As we announced in our meeting in August, we are looking to expand our pool of judges next year.  There are no specific qualifications except that you would need to go through a process of learning the judging criteria and Honors Night protocols.  Following that you will want to sit in on 1 or 2 sessions judging off the record.  Once you are comfortable, you can join the action.  

Let me know if you are interested in judging.  We need the help.
