ACHF Arts Access
We hope by adding these categories, Beginner/Novice and Exhibit Only, and providing education, members will have the confidence to display their work. Entry forms will show a comparison of the 2017 and 2016 participants and status of entry in the showcase. This will help us determine if our educational opportunities were appropriate.
We were very pleased with the number of photographers participating. Two members who showed last year were unable to show this year. Four members who did not show in 2016 submitted photographs. Three new members submitted photographs -- we worked very hard with the members who did not show last year and new members to get them to a level that they felt comfortable. I was very pleased that only three photographs were in the 'Exhibit Only' category and none in the 'Novice' category. To me, this means that the members felt comfortable having their photographs judged against those of more advanced photographers. One new member told me that she was already thinking about what she would do for next year-that to me is an accomplishment. The comments in the Peoples Choice sheet were mostly positive. Pleased with the design of the show, the addition of the old cameras and equipment, etc.
