There are seven monthly contests for prints and projected images each year.

  • There is 1 class for Prints, and 2 divisions – Color and Monochrome.
  • There are 2 classes of projected images competition:
    • Class A for beginners, &
    • Class AA for the more advanced.
  • An outside judge critiques & scores each entry.

Each entry must be the work of the entrant & labeled with a title and maker’s name. Prints may be commercially or home-printed and should be matted but not framed in glass.

Two separate Projected Images divisions are Color and Nature. In Nature, primary con­sideration is given to factual information or the nature story. Domestic plants and animals are not permitted. Specific subjects such as a Nevada image, wildflowers or landscapes may be assigned.

Points are awarded and ribbons presented monthly. At year’s end awards are presented for the highest cumulative score.
