The COVID pandemic wreaked havoc on the Jefferson City Photo Club schedule, causing the cancellation of fifteen consecutive meetings. One result of all these postponements was rolling contest themes forward, another was combining 2020 and 2021 contest winners in the Photo of the Year contest.
I have been pushing myself to enter images in every monthly contest, and had one or more winning entries in seven of the eight contests. Out of those, I placed first in two categories.
This photo originally took first in Color Prints in June 2021 for the theme of Boring. Charlie is an extremely photogenic cat.
This image also took first in June 2021 in the Open Print Category for the theme of Boring. Archive photos taken more than one year in the past may be entered in this category.
