There will be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in both categories and a combined 20 honorable mentions. The top three in each category will be printed and framed. The honorable mentions will be printed and either framed or displayed in some manner. All submissions will be shown via large screen or projected in the gallery during the opening reception and when the gallery is open. 


... and the winner is.

At Photographic Works we are trying to make life a bit more fun. For those familiar with our Curious Camera event from the past, we handed out trophies to our winners. The thinking was that as artists we probably missed out.  


It was so well received back then that we thought let’s do trophies for our Blue-izona Cyanotype competition. We plan on giving out trophies for other events in the future.


Here how it works…. If you place in the top three in Camera-based and or Camera-less categories you will receive a trophy. You will also get bragging rights and the admiration of others. The honorable mentions are not forgotten. You will get a beautiful certificate suitable for framing.


Our plan is to seek out more fun and happiness. For those who have asked we plan on bringing back Curious Camera.. and yes there will be trophies.
