The Merrimack Valley Camera Club is pleased to invite the Camera Club of Ottawa to participate in the 31st George W. Glennie Nature Salon photographic competition. The salon is open to camera clubs and photographic associations worldwide. Last year, 111 clubs from around the world submitted 1,100 images for competition.
This is a premier, international all-nature club competition of digital images known for its diversity of subjects which range from animals to botany to landscapes. In the animal categories, birds and mammals are usually well represented, but each year about a third of the entries are invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians or marine & freshwater life.
The Glennie presents awards to both club and individual images. Club awards include:
- Top 5 Clubs Total Score
- Top 5 Clubs Diversity Award - (best score from club's top six categories, club must have entries in at least 6 of the 8 categories)
Individual image awards include:
- Best of Show
- Best Wildlife
- Best of Category (Birds, Invetebrates, Reptiles, Amphibians, Mammals, Marine & Freshwater Life, Botany, and Landscape)
- Subcategory and Honor Awards depending upon number of entries. (Last year we had 27 subcategories.)
Please upload your images to be considered for this fun club event. The selection committee will be Lyle Trusty, Sue Craft and Helen Henry. These pictures are due by March 5, 2011. Last year Sue Craft won a gold medal and an HM, and David Wilkins won an HM at this photographic contest.
