Frederick Community College will host the Frederick Camera Clique’s 26th annual photography competition exhibit July 14-September 5, 2012, in the Mary Condon Hodgson Art Gallery. The opening reception for the regional juried exhibit will be Saturday, July 14, from 5-7 p.m.
The community is invited to the opening where prizes will be awarded to Best of Show, Best Color photograph and Best Monochrome. First place and honorable mention awards in the categories of people, places, and things will be announced as well. Guests at the opening reception will be invited to vote for a People’s Choice award.
Entries in the exhibit were not required to address a defined theme. Each photo will be judged on its own merit.
The Frederick Camera Clique’s annual competitions are open to entries from all interested photographers, with no limit to the number of entries per person. The pieces selected for the exhibit were determined by a panel of three judges from the Frederick area.

His most recent personal projects have centered on downtown Frederick and include "A Year On Market" and "Dancers in the Streets."
