Larry Cowles is the judge for this competition.
Larry has been a member of PSA since 1984. His interest in photography started when he was in high school but really started to develop while he was in the military, learning to process black & white images in the base darkroom. Working in the film processing industry for ten years gave him the skills to teach photography and after winning a company photo contest, he was hooked on entering state fairs and local camera store contests and later exhibitions.
Being involved in a local camera club lead him to join PSA. Over the years Larry has held many offices in camera clubs, local councils, and PSA. Travel, teaching photography, judging, lecturing, presenting photography programs, and writing for the PSA Journal and other publications has helped Larry to develop his photographic skills and his ability to compete worldwide in photography exhibitions. He has been the Chair of several exhibitions and actively involved in PSA as a member of several committees, Director of the Color Projected Image Division (CPID) Tops, Chair of CPID, and Editor of the CPID News for the PSA Journal.
