This month’s theme is “Little Shops on Back Streets” – You know, that bakery, meat market, bistro or dry goods place that only the locals know about.
Participating in our monthly contests can help us to become better photographers. We can see and learn from all of the entries as our members showcase their best work each month.
These monthly contests are the preliminary rounds for the Annual Best of Nikonians contest where you have the opportunity to win attractive prizes and have your images highlighted in the Winners Galleries and published in the eZine The top images will be selected by the winner of the previous months challenge and will be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. Please keep in mind that images will be selected based on image quality, subject matter, relevance to the theme, and creativity just to name a few. The winning image will be added to the Monthly Challenge Winner’s Gallery for the Travel Forum. The winner will be recognized in our weekly newsletter and will receive a printable Certificate of Photographic Achievement.
I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge! Good luck!!!
