Judging and Presenting:
–Peter has a tentative judge-presenter for September: Susan Gilmore, an architectural photographer.
–Peter suggested possibly getting a retired art director for a judge.
–Having judges with a different point of view is refreshing. ie: a painter
–Lee Swenson said John Olson sent him a list of names of past judges.
–Bill, Lee and Peter to get the photo judging process flow from John Olson.

Defining Salon Topics:
September–Letters of the alphabet: Be creative. Photograph literal or non literal objects or shapes that create a letter or letters of an alphabet.
October–Photojournalism: Tell a story using 1 or more images to make a single story on a board up to 16 x 20. The guidelines for photojournalism apply.
November–Humor: Capture humor
January–Tracks: This topic can be widely interpreted. We’ll leave it up to the photographer to define and “sell” what “tracks” means to them.
February–After Dark: After sunset and before sunrise
March–Living Faces: living human faces
April–Industrial: Get your hard hat, boots, hazmat suit, and go out and shoot!
May–Rural Landscapes: Get away from the city

Judging Divisions:
–Bob crunched the numbers for the past several years. Numbers are close for Photographer of the Year.
A brainstorming session produced the following…
–There will be 2 divisions: Amateur and Professional
–The determination between Amateur and Professional will be made up of several factors. ie: scores from previous years, if you make a living being a photographer.
–Once you are in the Professional division, you will stay there.
–At the end of the year members will vote for a People’s Choice for both the Amateur and Professional divisions.
–A Digital image must be submitted for an accepted print if you want to be considered.

For Future Discussion:
–Still need more fleshing out of the 2 divisions plan including what the cutoff will be between the Amateur division and Professional division.
–Planning of the Interclub Competition
–Do we need to do anything differently this year?
