Purpose of this Challenge
This TEST Challenge is designed to let all SANP members participate and to see how well this process works. Any applicable subjects allowed in the 2022 Salon can be photographed (see Salon 2022 for categories). The Challenge location was chosen to help those who might live in a predominately urban neighborhood find subjects to photograph. Winter makes this a difficult Challenge.
You must register for this challenge if you want to submit images for judging. You will receive a registration confirmation. You may submit up to three images for judging, following the guidelines below for file naming, file size, and deadline. Before the images are posted to Zenfolio for judging, the Administrator will replace a Participant's name with an assigned Participant Number to help ensure image anonymity during the judging. If you have questions, contact Ron McConathy, email@example.com.
If a Participant wants his/her images displayed on Zenfolio but not judged, that can be stated in the email with the submissions.
Note: Challenge image submissions will be posted in a Challenge Gallery on the SANP Zenfolio website accessible to the public; winners will be displayed on SANP social media, the SANP website, and in the SANP Newsletter.
