Held at The Hudgens Center for Art and Learning


Another BIG year planned for 2021! The 6th Annual “Stand in Ansel Adams Footsteps” photographic competition will return to The Hudgens Center for Art and Learning a 8-week exhibition. This year’s exhibit will run from February 20th until April 17th, 2021 in The Hudgens Center for Art and Learning, Georgia Galley.

Concept and goal remain to shoot in Black & White (monochrome) to emulate as close as you can the style, look and feel of Ansel Adams work. OPEN to any current GNPA member.

Enthusiast and Novice Divisions and 3 Categories (Landscape, Macro / Close Up & Open). Entry Fees:  Per entry $5.00 each.  Maximum of 3 entries per a single Category or a maximum total of 9 entries.

For the first time we will have more than ribbons, certificates, and bragging rights!  A Best of Show will be awarded from across all categories. Each category will have a First, Second, and Third Place. Honorable Mention will be awarded at discretion of our judge, up to 4 in each category.  Coupons and Gift Cards to winners.
