There are three judges for this contest. Mr. Merto who is a professional portrait photographer, Mr. Blessings who is a former medical photographer, and Chloe Sampson who is a Hobbysit photographer and the former Fivay Photography club president.
“I hope to see mostly creativity and proficiency in the use of basic principles of photography,” Poletti said.
There is a three dollar fee for each entry. Proceedings from this contest will go towards the purchase of new photography equipment for the Fivay Falcons Photography club. The entries for this contest will be printed on photographic paper and will be exhibited in the main building. The theme for the photography contest is landscapes.
There will be three winners chosen from this contest, one first place winner, one second place winner, and one third place winner. The third place winner will receive a fifteen dollar gift card.
