Our contest themes for 2019
Your best of 2018
Tools of the Trade A still life or action shot can be used to feature the tools of any trade. A special collection of kitchen utensils, or those of a surgeon or mechanic - it's up to your interpretation.
A New Perspective Looking up, ground level or looking down! Don't fall into the trap of shooting everything at eye level, just as you see it. Take time to explore your subject. Get up high to explore a new view or get low and see what changes!
Bridge Take a picture of any bridge you find interesting. You can be on, under or away from the bridge. It can be taken day or night.
Long Exposure Take any long exposure picture, day or night. Must use a shutter speed 4 seconds or longer.
Scenic This one is going to be specific. Shoot a local (KC, MO or KS) park as if you were going to have the conservation commission use it as advertising for the park.
Bikes Moving or still, modern or vintage, motored or not, we want to see the creative way you feature one or more bikes in your photography.
Planes, Trains & Automobiles
Roadside Attractions Unique perspective of a well known roadside attraction
Wildlife Maybe you got a great picture during your trip to Yellowstone or maybe you just walked out into your backyard. Anything not domesticated with feathers, fins or fur.
Fall Foliage This one was recommended because most of the club members goes out and shoots this.
