Tops in CT 2018 Closing Date

It appears I goofed slightly when composing the Tops in Connecticut details and entry form flyer; I put in two different closing dates, Monday Oct. 22 and Monday Oct. 29. October 29 is correct, but if you get your entries in by Oct. 22 so much the better. This is a hazard of using the Copy and Paste commands once too often without checking the final result carefully.

As we said in previous posts Tops in Connecticut is a competition held every 2 years for Connecticut photographers. The competition accepts approximately 100 images that are assembled into a show to be presented at a meeting in the Spring of 2019. Among the 100 images will be 13 medal winning images:

  • Best in Show 
  • Best Cityscape
  • Best Creative
  • Best Landscape
  • Best Monochrome
  • Best Nature
  • Best Photojournalism
  • Best Portrait
  • Best Seascape
  • Best Travel
  • 3 Judges Choice awards
Select your six images and send them in soon. We have already received entries from 5 Connecticut photographers.
