The primary purpose of the 2017 Apple Pi Photo contest is for members to try and learn new photo techniques and learn about those used by other members.
You must be a member of the Washington Apple Pi User Group to enter any photos.
Photos submitted in the Novice or Advanced Levels must be take with an Apple
camera, i.e., using any Apple product (iPhone, iPad, Mac, etc.).
Photos submitted in the Open Level may be taken with any camera, i.e., any camera
(Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Kodak Brownie, etc.), including an Apple camera.
Photos must be taken between January 1st, 2017 and September 30th, 2017.
You must decide your level of photo experience (Novice or Advanced).
Any member may enter photos in the Open Level ategories.
Each level will have two categories, e.g., Standard photos and Modified photos.
You may submit a total of five (5) photos for each category in your level of experience (Novice or Advanced) and a total of five (5) photos in the Open Level categories. (Thus, each member will be able to submit up to a total of 20 photos.)
There will be a series of Apple Pi SIG meetings to discuss the taking and editing of photos. Group participation and questions will be encouraged at these meetings.
All submitted photos must include the 1) type of camera used, 2) the software used to edit and modify the photos, and 3) a brief explanation of editing or modification made to the photos.
All contest photos must be uploaded to the Apple Pi user site no later than Sunday, October 8th, 2017.
After photos are submitted, judges may group photos into logical sub-groups for judging, e.g., portraits, landscapes, sunsets, animals, etc.
Judging will be done after October 8th. The results of the judging will be discussed at a meeting after October 8th. At that meeting, we would appreciate if you would also attend and discuss your photos and the changes made to them.
