Welcome Message from the Nature Chairs
Ilana Block and Ellie McCrea
Ilana and I would like to welcome you all to the 2016-2017 session of Montreal Camera Club Nature Division.
A couple of important changes have been made to the lineup in the Nature Division this season. Firstly, we have added a new category, Ornithology (Birds). And secondly, we’ve removed the Action category to simplify matters. We feel that these changes will allow the other categories – Botany, General & Zoology – to gain more recognition.
We would like to encourage all nature photographers to expand their horizons and consider the wide scope of subjects in the natural world.
Important competition information has also been updated this season including the Nature Guidelines. A printout of a shorter ‘cheat sheet’ version of these guidelines will be available on opening night September 12, 2016. The executive team has put a lot of work into making these changes to make your MCC experience a good one. For competitors, it is important to know how to size and label you entries. It is also important to read up on the awards and trophy guidelines if you wish to compete.
In summary, the Montreal Camera Club is made up of a large group of passionate photographers, from the novice to the expert, who have joined to learn and compete, as well as make friends and have FUN!
