Each month we include an “assignment” in the competition that is in addition to the usual categories (Beginner, Advanced, Star). The assignment category combines all experience levels into one competition with one first, second and third place prize awarded for the assignment. You must be a member of LCPS to compete.
Guests are always welcome to attend the mettings and enjoy the entries and critiques. Assignments are great exercises for creativity!

Assignment List – 2018 – 2019
October – Sunsets/Sunrises
Gently click your shutter and capture the beautiful, colorful glory of one day following another.
November – Fall Colors
Capture the beauty of summer falling into winter, golds and reds of the season.
December – Abstracts
Get creative and let the artist in you see the world from a different perspective. Abstract art (sometimes called non-objective art) is a painting or sculpture that does not depict a person, place, or thing in the natural world. With abstract art, the subject of the work is based on what you see: color, shapes, brushstrokes, size, scale, and, in some cases, the process itself.
January – Silhouettes
Capture the dark outline of a thing against a lighter background. This type of photograph usually renders the subject as Black with no detail and can be of people, animals or objects.
February – Bridges
Covered, suspended, concrete or steel, night lit (more glamorous), anything that leads you from one side to the other.
March – Roads or Trails
The path that leads you where you’re going. A winding road or trail that forms an “S” Curve leading into infinity makes a good image.
April – People at Work
Hi ho, hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to work we go…capture people doing the things that make the world go round. People working such as machine shop, blacksmith, or anyone on the job.
May – Reflections
Reflections in a mirror, on water, on window glass, lakes, rivers or anything that creates a reflection.
June – Candid Street Shots
