In the Spotlight
March 10, 2015
Tuesday's student photo competition drew eighteen talented contestants
ranging from Kindergarten to College. There were some stunning photos
entered and the five judges spent around 15 hours viewing the 54
photos and 18 essays submitted by the contestants. Although they each used
different judging methods, they were in close agreement about the winners.
Special congratulations go to Ainsley Patrick who won the
G1 mirrorless camera
with two interchangeable lenses!
Congratulations are also in order for the divison winners who
received $25 prizes, while the remaining
contestants won $10. All of the contestants received a loud accolade at
the end of the evening. They did a fine job.

Needed! CCOR Members' 16x20 foam core mounted Science or Nature themed, 2014
or earlier Salon entries. Please bring them to AMSE or the March 10 CCOR meeting!
The American Museum of Science and Energy in Oak Ridge (AMSE) has offered
to host a CCOR print exhibit for “science and nature” themed photographs.
With 88,000 visitors per year this is a great opportunity for the club to
increase awareness as well as contribute to our community by supporting AMSE
with our best artwork. So if you have prints from recent salons or otherwise
which roughly fit into this category, mounted on the salon 16x20 foam core
boards, please bring them by AMSE and sign a 1-year loan agreement (supplied
by the museum). Museum staff are ready to accept them so please drop them
off as soon as possible or bring them to the March CCOR meeting at Roane State.
