ABC Gallery
« on: May 18, 2017, 10:43:27 AM »
A new competition for photos for the ABC Gallery will begin on June 1st.  Every month, a new variety will be selected for folks to send their images in of adults, chicks, young started birds.  The best photos will then be selected by a panel of judges: Walt Leonard, Rip Stalvey, and Tom Roebuck.

The winning photos will be announced and used in our ABC Gallery.

The first month begins June 1st and entries will close on June 15th, so dust off those photos and get them sent in!  The first variety is for Brown Red Ameraucanas.  You can send pics of adult male and female (profile shots preferred), chicks (group images ok), and young started birds.

The goal is to have the best representation of each variety, at the various stages of development, in our gallery.

Pictures must be a minimum of 600px wide x 400 px high to be included.  Send your photos to info@ameraucanabreedersclub.org and put "Gallery Competition" in the subject line.

The judging for the June Gallery Competition, with Brown Red Ameraucanas, is complete.  The entries were not as numerous as I would like to see and the only gallery image that changed is the Brown Red large fowl chick, submitted by Mel Pace.

No entries for bantam Brown Reds were submitted.

Congratulations to Mel Pace!  Your picture of the brown red Ameraucana chick is already up in the gallery!

Entries for the July competition, for Silver Ameraucanas, close in three days, on the 15th.  Then they will be turned over to our panel of judges for evaluation.  I will announce the winners here, after August 1st.

The next competition, for August, will be Buff Ameraucanas - both large fowl and bantam - so get those pictures sent in to info@ameraucanabreedersclub.org.
