In the Spotlight

Two Virtual Club Contests

These are challenging times and I hope that this email finds you and your family healthy and safe. Our plan for our April CCOR meeting on April 14th is to have a virtual meeting where we view our photo competition on our own computers. This will allow us to have our meeting and the competition while we are isolated. It will also allow us to adhere to the CDC guidelines about avoiding physical contact during the COVID-19 pandemic while still having a lot of fun. We will pass along instructions as to how we all connect in an email in a few days.

Competition #1

What does joy look like to you? A baby's first smile? The open-mouthed scream of an athlete who just landed a backflip on a dirt bike? The human face can express joy in an infinite variety of ways. Submit your favorite joyful portraits.

Competition #2

Images are restricted to your house and your yard, but they can be any subject from abstracts to nature, to someone finding a funny way to entertain themselves, some new technique you’ve experimented with in your “freed-up” time or some construction that you created just for this purpose. Go for it! We’ll probably have you tell your story about the images.

Open to Members

As usual, we will set up a smugmug site for each of these. Competition is open to only members who have paid their 2020 membership dues. You must have your images submitted by 12:00 noon on Sunday 4/12/20 … Easter Sunday!

You may enter 3 images in the “Portraits of Joy” and 3 images in the “Shelter in Place” competition. Colby McLemore will be our judge for this double competition.

Our Library

We're building a library of CCOR information, tools and history files. Take a peek at them in our library.
