Attached you will find the latest issue of the Shutterbug Newsletter in PDF format. We are running a little behind with our web site so please excuse the delay as we prepare to update both the Paradise Creek Photo Contest and the f-64 Challenge. We feel confident that we can have our site up and running with the latest updates later tonight. I will send out a short notice when we have completed
The June f-64 Challenge will open shortly for voting. This will mark the twelfth and final vote for the fiscal year which ended June 30th.
At the conclusion of voting next week, the results will be tallied to help us determine who will be honored with the title: Shutterbug
Photographer-of-the-Year for 2012-2013 and those who have placed 2nd, 3rd, and Honorable Mention. In addition the Board of Directors will select one of our contestants to receive the Picture-of-the-Year Award. Sixty-two percent or a total of 77 of our club
members have actively participated at one point or another in this year long Challenge. An even greater percentage of our membership has cast ballots in support of this program. To all Shutterbug members, thank you very much for your support for this venture during the past year.
On our web site this month, the Shutterbug Club will be hosting the Paradise Creek Nature Park Photo Contest. The Hampton Roads Digital Shutterbug Club has joined The Elizabeth River Project Organization, the city of Portsmouth and the Virginia Port Authority in an
effort to help promote public awareness, wetland restoration and education. The Paradise Creek Nature Park provides Shutterbugs with a new and exciting location from which to capture some awesome pictures and it will only get better as time passes. Please take the opportunity to visit and vote in this contest when you visit our web site later tonight or tomorrow to vote in our f-64 Challenge.
