Competition Information


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!

Great critique opportunity to grow as an artist

Assignment List – 2018 – 2019


October –  Sunsets/Sunrises

Gently click your shutter and capture the beautiful, colorful glory of one day following another.


NovemberFall Colors

Capture the beauty of summer falling into winter, golds and reds of the season.



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.



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.


MarchRoads 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.



AprilPeople 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

Candid shots of people on the street and may not be staged.  Photos of people doing natural movements like working, walking, real, not posed.




On your mark, get set, go…  capture those athletes in action.  Any sport or action, rodeo, football, baseball, swimming, soccer, ice skating, hockey, etc.


AugustMacro or Close Up

Up close and personal – insects, flowers, or an up close shot of a tiny subject such as jewelry, rocks, stones.

The second Wednesday of each month, Mr. Larry Perry heads up a group of local photographers who meet for a lunch.  This meeting is properly called  “The Digital Lunch Bunch”.  Anyone with an interest in photography, or not, is welcome to join us.

Meeting location is being reconsidered – if interested, you may get on Mr. Perry’s “Larry’s Notes” and be fully informed of all photographic events in our area.  Just send an e-mail and we’ll take care of that .
