What to Bring to Conference

WRITING FOR THE WRITERS FORUM

– Your written work will be gently and positively examined with the purpose of finding ways to improve it. Works can include stories, poems, photo essays, or other formats with an outdoor theme. Participants should bring at least 12 copies of the work, and although the length of the works can vary, about 1,200 words or less would be best. It should not be your best work, but something you would like help with. Spectators are welcome.

PHOTOS FOR THE PHOTO CRITIQUE

– Entertaining and informative for all, this program looks at photographs with an eye to how they could be improved. Those who want their shots critiqued should bring 3 to 5 digital images on CDs or flash drives. The critique will be led by Bad Cop Tom Ulrich and Good Cop Jack Olson.

PHOTOS FOR MEMBERS’ CHOICE CONTEST

– Conference participants are the judges for this one. Members may submit one or two matted prints, either color or black and white, and the photos may have been taken at any time since the beginning of photography. Altered/manipulated images are eligible. Each entry should be designated as Scenic, Flora, or Fauna. Print size is a maximum of 8 x 12 inches matted out to a maximum 12 x 16 inches, and entries should not be framed. You may put the title on the back, but please do not put your name anywhere on it. The organizers will keep track of what is whose.

DONATIONS FOR THE AUCTION

– The RMOWP Auction is not only a lot of fun but also raises some necessary funds for the organization. We’ll be receiving donations from our corporate friends, but members’ donations are also needed. Bring books, craft and gift items, photo equipment, your own matted photos (maybe your Members’ Choice Contest entries?), or whatever you find lying around the house, with the exception of spouses.
