Panorama Prints at Springbrook, 2015

  1. PANORAMA PRINTS -- SPRINGBROOK
    It is time to think about bringing your Panorama Prints to Springbrook for the exclusive judging of these prints. You must bring them, or have someone from your club bring them, to Springbrook,and also take them home again. This is the only official judging of Panorama Prints for N4C.
  2. Please list on the back of the print your name, camera club, N4C member number, and title of the print.
    Rules for this contest can be found in the N4C Handbook on page F9, and as printed below.
    Also, I will be looking for judges. We would like to have judges from clubs which do not have any entries in the Panorama Print contest, if possible. Please let me know if you are available to help judge. Contact me at Stoever1@aol.com
    Thanks for all you do for N4C, and see you at Springbrook.
    Curt Stoever, Panorama Print Contest Chairman
