The N4C year runs from September to May. At the end of their year, all images receiving first place, second place, third place and honorable mentions are judged again to determine the “Best of the Best”. Results are announced at the convention held in September. During the year 647 Altered Reality images were entered, 864 Black and White, 665 Journalism, 877 Nature, 896 Pictorial and 791 Travel.
Our members did a great job representing our club this year. Beside the digital images below, Terry Butler received a 2nd Place Award for the Photo Essay Contest (see below the gallery) and a 1st Place for the web site competition.

The photo essay that I put together, “Capturing the Western Prairie” earned 2nd Place. It’s an award that should be shared with all the great photographers whose stunning images were in the slide show. That includes Melissa Anderson, Betty Bryan, Terry Butler, Marianne Diericks, Ginny Gaynor, Mary Penny Johnson,Lori Moilanen, MJ Springett and Michael Waterman. Special thanks are due to Marianne for her assistance in the production. This video is slightly longer than the version submitted to N4C since the rules prevented including any reference to our club or the photographers.
