Lower Mainland Challenge (7:00 PM PDT)
Lower Mainland Challenge Here is your opportunity to be an inquisitive explorer and intrepid photographer - with a creative streak. Between now and May 4th, go and explore one location (or more) in the Lower Mainland, but outside Richmond, and photograph the heck out of it, trying to show it in a new and different way while still capturing the essence and spirit of the place.  Give each photo a title.  Note: When out photographing please follow all public health regulations and restrictions in place at the time and do not put yourself or others at risk. For our purposes the Lower Mainland extends from the coast in the West to Hope in the East, and from the USA border in the South to Pemberton in the North. Submit up to 4 digital images (no prints) to the Lower Mainland Challenge competition on our website.  You can find it on the calendar on May 10, or from the menu: Competitions > Submit Images to a Competition and choose the Lower Mainland Challenge 2022 from the list.  If you need help using the website, email: Format your images as if for evaluation (max 1600 pixels wide x 1200 high) and name each file with the image title.  Do not include your name or any other information. Final DEADLINE for image submission is 11.30 pm on Sunday May 1. Following are some suggested locations, but there are many other possibilities: a)    BC Ferries (e.g. take a walk-on day trip to Swartz Bay or a Gulf Island and back) b)    Squamish Railway Heritage park. c)    Dr. Sun Yat-sen garden (Vancouver) d)    Chinatown (Vancouver) e)    BIG Architecture (Vancouver downtown) f)     Nitobe Memorial Garden (UBC) g)    UBC campus h)    Heritage Vancouver (older ‘heritage’ architecture in the city) i)     Lighthouse Park (West Vancouver) j)     Farming in the Lower Mainland k)    Reifel bird sanctuary (Ladner) l)     Granville Island m)   Other Must be outside Richmond but within the Lower Mainland At our regular meeting on May 10th
Annual General Meeting (7:00 PM PDT)
The AGM will be held via Zoom.  A link for the meeting will be sent out the day before the meeting.  After the AGM the winners of the Lower Mainland Challenge will be presented.
Evaluation: Up Close and Personal, Spring has Sprung, Open (7:00 PM PDT)
Theme suggestions: 1) Up Close and Personal – This could be macro photography or portrait of a person(s) based on Sandra Leung’s talk or thing(s). 2) Spring has Sprung – Anything that showcases “Spring”.  What is spring to you?  How about a Spring Chicken?  Baseball?  Sailing?  Or just a spring? 3) Open – if you have something else, go ahead and submit it. When adding a title to your image, don’t add the theme name to it.  If you don't want a score, just comments, then add a hash tag, #, at the end of the image's title.  If we get more than 55 images, then we will look at only giving a score for the 3rd image with no or minimal comments.
