2019 Photography Contests

People's Choice Photo Contests
2019 will begin with People's Choice contests in January, February, & March. Another People's Choice Contest will take place at the Annual Flower Show and Tea on August 17, with three categories. And as always, we'll have a special competition at the November AGM, to select the photo used for the 2020 EYGC Yearbook cover. Entries are judged by a vote of those who are present at the meetings. You're invited to provide "photographic interpretation" for each category.
