2018 Photography Contests

People's Choice Photo Contests
2018 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 18, with three categories. And as always, we'll have a special competition at the November AGM, to select the photo used for the 2019 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.

  • January 18 - Garden Bones – A winter photo of the garden
  • February 15 - Family Day – An outing or activity
  • March 15 - Ice
  • August 18 (Annual Flower Show):
    1. Vegetables in the Garden

    3. At the Beach
  • November 16 - Yearbook Cover
