Photo Expo Overview

The 10th Annual Claude Moore Park Photography Expo features six categories of competition; in addition, entries photographed in a Loudoun County park may be designated for the $100.00 Paul Glascock Memorial People’s Choice Award. The Friends’ Choice Award was introduced in 2015 (see below for details).  All accepted entries will be considered for the $100.00 Best in Show Award. Entries will be accepted from adult beginner and advanced levels and from young photographers in two age groups: 12 years of age and under, and ages 13 to 17. Eighteen-year-old students with a valid high school ID may be judged in the 13 to 17 age category. Any youth can enter as an adult if they pay the adult entry fee.

People’s Choice Award:

The Paul Glascock Memorial People’s Choice Award will be selected from submissions photographed in Loudoun County parks.  Entrants of any age are welcome to enter this category.  The panel of judges will select three entries for display to be voted on by the public on the day of the Expo.  Each visitor viewing the Expo will be given one ticket to be placed at the entry of their choice. The winning entry will be awarded a $100.00 prize, donated by the Friends of Claude Moore Park (FCMP).  The winner will be announced at 3:30PM on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at the Lanesville Ordinary/Craft Fair. The winner does not have to be present to win.
