Theme: Three Open Categories, one Theme Category: "Pure Florida" Start date: August 1, 2022 End date: August 31, 2022 Judging starts: September 1, 2022 Judging ends: September 18, 2022 There are three open and one theme categories for this competition. The open categories are Color, Monochrome, Creative and the theme category is Pure Florida. You may enter up to THREE (3) images in one category and ONE (1) image in another category, or any combination thereof. Pure Florida images may be color, monochrome or creative images. You may enter 4 images as long as they are not all entered into a single category. You may change any image until the contest cutoff date has passed. Pure Florida includes images that depict the beautiful and unique qualities of The Sunshine State. They might be landscapes, wildlife, weather, street, astrophotography that includes a Florida element, macro of Florida flora, and more. Ideally, the Floridian elements should be recognizable, but the maker needs to identify the location if the entry is challenged. Keep in mind that our judges are trained to consider impact, composition and technical elements. Best in Category Winners Special Bunche Beach BeautyCarol Heffernan.
