2014 California Poppy Festival - April 26-27, 2014

April 26-27 – Lancaster City Park

LPA’s 10th Year of Participation!

The LPA will be participating in the 2014 Poppy Festival, in the Fine Arts Division, for the 10th year in a row. Participation has always been great, attendance high, and we always pick up new members during the event. It’s a great opportunity to be involved in a fun community service project, to promote photography and the LPA, and an opportunity to learn how to display/sell your work.  Plus… it’s a wonderful opportunity to hang out with other photo club members and talk PHOTOGRAPHY!

Please consider signing up on the LPA website to work a shift. New members are encouraged to participate. All Sat/Sun volunteers receive a free pass to the festival (up to an $8 value).

All LPA members are invited to submit "framed/under glass/ready to hang" photos (up to 3) for display (or for sale). Full wrapped canvas photos are ok too. The larger the photo, the more eye catching it will be. Smaller items such as matted prints and greeting cards sell well. Photos do not have to be poppy-related. Show off your best work!

  • 20% of all sales will be withheld for “donation” to LPA
  • No checks.  Cash or Credit only
  • Release of Liability needed

All photos need to be dropped off at the booth on Friday, April 25th between 2:00pm and 5:00pm.  We will need help with take-in, getting our booth ready and hanging photos. Please sign up below if you'd like to sell items, and indicate what you'll be selling.

If you have any additional questions, please contact your chairperson Sue Craft ([email protected]) or co-chair Tylene Trout ([email protected]).

Field Trip: Venice Beach, May 10

Field Trips

On Saturday, May 10th for the next Photojournalism competition. Plan to meet at the front of the parking lot at the end of Venice Blvd at 9:30am. We will have the opportunity to photograph surfers, skateboarders and lots of interesting people. After lunch we will walk down to the Santa Monica Pier to take photos by the traveling rings. If that is too far for you to walk, you can move your car down to the pier and join us there.

I will be leading a field trip to Venice Beach so everyone can practice shooting I would suggest bringing a moderate telephoto lens for this day trip. Don't forget your sunscreen and your biggest memory card as you can take a lot of photos shooting action.

Sign up below if you'd like to join us.

You can submit anonymously up to 5 photos on our website for our members to critique. It’s a great opportunity to get some positive feedback on the AV Fair photos you are considering for entry. You also may want to submit photos you are considering for up and coming LPA, S4C or PSA competitions. We need all skill levels from Masters to Novice. It’s all anonymous just like the competitions we hold quarterly.
