2016 NEOWA Photography Contest Guidelines

 There will be no separate divisions in the photography contest. Entries for the best photographic image in each category may include black and white prints, color prints, digital prints or color transparencies. There are seven categories: Scenic, Flora, Action, People, Fauna, Still Life and Members in Action. There are no restrictions on when the photograph was taken. Winning photographs from previous years may not be re-entered. If less than two people enter a category, there will be no contest in that category. If less than four entries in a category are received, only first place will be awarded.

Category Definitions

Scenic      Landscape and picturesque settings that may include figures of  people or flora or fauna as a                    center of interest.

Flora       Identifiable plant or vegetation should be primary subject.

Action       People engaged in an outdoor activity or fauna in motion.

People       Person or group in an outdoor-related setting. People are the primary subject and must clearly be recognizable (not simply anybody outside).
