FOLSOM FOCUS PHOTOGRAPHY 2022
October 7, 2022, to January 10, 2023
Sponsored by the Folsom Arts Association
at the Gallery at 48 Natoma
Congratulations to all participants!
Thank you to this year’s judges.
The 14th Folsom Focus Photography contest features the work of 71 amateur photographers in both adult and youth divisions who captured striking images in Folsom in 4 different categories: Folsom Wildlife, Folsom Outdoors, Urban Folsom, and Macro. For many of our entrants, this is their first contest, providing an excellent opportunity to see their work displayed in a gallery.
The photos were judged by a panel of three judges, Sally Cullen, Terrie Gray, and Kathy Kayner. Photos were judged based on visual appeal, pictorial composition, originality, and consistency with the contest category theme.
If you haven’t had a chance to see the photography, please stop by the gallery. It’s a fantastic show!
