What Would the Judges Say? Webinar Recording Available

Esteemed photo contest judges Amy Gulick, George Lepp and Marc Muench shared what stood out in some contest winning images. Through this conversation, you’ll get a sense of what judges prioritize when assessing an image, what moves or impresses them, and what makes one image stand out among thousands of others. In addition to the recording, also check out NANPA’s Photo Contest Secrets Handbook.
