Lions Gate Nature Competition – 2017
Sep 1 @ 12:00 am – Oct 21 @ 10:00 pm

We are participating again this year and we’re taking a slightly different approach.  You’ll be able to upload 3 images in any of the categories.  Also, voting will be open for one week near the end of October and you will be permitted to vote for your own image.   Since only one image per member may be submitted, there will be some additional judging to choose the top 8 images.

As a club we did well in 2016 and placed third  in mammals.  We’ll try to do better this year. 

The categories are:

  1. – Birds
  2. – Mammals
  3. – General (not 1 or 2)

Look through your shots and be certain there is no ‘hand of man’ in the image.  Images have a maximum width of 1400 pixels and maximum height of 1050 pixels.  Images have to be uploaded by October 21st.

When the current year rules are prepared, they will be added.  Click on the image or here to see the rules

This is a unique opportunity for the photography produced by your members to be judged by some of the best nature photographers in Canada.

January Meeting – Slideshow Night
Jan 3 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

slideshownightSlideshow Night – The new year meeting is going to be quite exciting with slideshows from many of our members.  This past year our members have traveled and will be sharing their memories.  The last slideshow night was a huge success.

If you are planning to add a slideshow, please contact Jack Harynuk – technical.opc@gmail.com

Before the show gets going, we’ll get the club business out of the way, then see the results of the assignment, the field trip and our favourite shots from December.

There will be coffee and tea at $1 but bring your own popcorn!
