PHOTOGRAPHY SCHEDULE

2016-2017

 

Gwynne Tibbetts - Chair, Juliet Cain - Asst. Chair

 

NOTES FOR THIS YEAR: 

Please drop off all photo entries by the date indicated, which will always be the Sunday before our meeting.  There will be a bin outside Juliet Cain’s house at 81 Locust Hill Road, Darien. You can, of course, drop your photographs off prior to Sunday as well, as the bin will be out there for that weekend.  Always include your photograph WITH your entry form filled out and taped to the back.  Please be sure to put your name on it, and indicate which is top and bottom. We are making entering easier this year, by keeping the same white matte border format on all entries.  This way you can reuse that same matte border over and over - if it stays clean - of course!  The best selection of matte borders is from Big Shots, Darien, and Michaels Craft Store in Stamford.   And as always, please feel free to contact us, if you have any questions at all!
