GNPA wins the 2013 NG3C Shootout !!!

On Saturday, October 12th, 2013, a great many photographers from 5 regional camera clubs met together at Oxford College of Emory University in Oxford, Georgia and competed in the 2013 North Georgia Camera Club Council's annual photography shootout sponsored by Showcase Photo & Video in Atlanta. The competition was fierce but friendly as teammates from 5 photo clubs gathered their courage and sharpened their skills. They worked very hard to "beat the clock" in what has become North Georgia's premiere photo scavenger hunt.

By 2 p.m. on Saturday, all 5 clubs had turned in their images to the judging staff, made up of photo instructors from local educational institutions and experienced professional photographers. The contest categories, selected early in the day, are listed as follows:

1 - Shapes - In the Middle
2 - Technique - Panning Motion
3 - Creative - Accidental Letters
4 - Nature - Urban Nature
5 - Architecture - Weathered Architecture

The judges were:

Mike Boatright - Local Atlanta photographer
Perry Dilbeck - Instructor at Art Institute of Atlanta
Maury Gortemiller - Instructor at Kennesaw State University
Kyle Petersen - Instructor at Gwinnett Technical College
Jeff Woodlee - Local Atlanta photographer

The results of the competition are as follows:

1st Place - Georgia Nature Photographers Association (GNPA)
2nd Place - Cherokee Photography Club
3rd Place - Cobb Photographic Society
4th Place - Paulding Photography Club
5th Place - Brentwood Photography Group

Thank you to everyone who made this year's shoot out a success, and to all participants! Special thanks go to Tom Simpson of the GNPA for helping organize and host the shootout and to Sandee Horan, Jerrie Paschal, Kim Bates and all those on the board of directors of the NG3C and photo club leaders who made this great event happen! See you again next year!

Haygood Avenue Closed Phase 1

A portion of  Haygood Avenue will be closed next week for work related to construction of the new residence hall.
Please see the attached pdf map for detours.pdf-wht

Student/visitor parking lot on Haygood Avenue:
Haygood Avenue will be closed between the intersection with Pierce Street and the entrance to the Haygood student/visitor parking lot.  A temporary entrance to the parking lot will be created just south of the usual entrance.  (See attached map)
Pedestrian traffic:
The usual pedestrian crosswalk at the corner of Pierce Street and Haygood Avenue will be closed, and part of the sidewalk on the south side of Pierce Street near Haygood will not be available.  Pedestrians needing to get from Haygood or Hamill Street to Pierce Street should follow temporary signs directing them to their destination.

Parking will continue to be available in the Haygood Avenue lot during this time.

On another note: two areas inside open buildings that shouldn’t be photographed because of artist copyright issues.  They are the Hunt Gallery in the rotunda of the student center and the Fran Elizer Exhibit Gallery in the library.  I doubt your photographers would choose to shoot there, anyway, but thought it best for me to mention it.
