The Museum of Photographic Arts, the Gallery Store, and the Reader would like to thank San Diego County photographers who submitted entries to this year's contest. A total of 810 images were received from 372 individuals. All entries were judged by James A Under, executive director of the Friends of Photography, who selected thirty-two for exhibition.
Six of these are color images, twenty-three are black and white, and three are mixed media. The eight prize-winning photographs are presented in this issue of the Reader. The complete exhibition may be seen at the Gallery Store, 724 Broadway, downtown San Diego, from Saturday, October 18, through Saturday, November 15. In December and January, the exhibition will travel to Southwestern and Palomar colleges.
