Recent Competition Winning Images

Images from our most recent monthly competitions 

We feature images that received the highest marks at our Print Competitions and Digital Image Composition Challenges.

Each month, except December, the TOPG conducts photo competitions. Currently, we have two types of competitions, Digital Composition Challenges, where club members may submit up to two images for review by a judge, and  Print Competitions, where club members may submit up to two prints and two digital images, or just digital images, for review by a judge. In either case, top ranking images, ones that receive a rating of Merit or High Merit  are selected and displayed in the following galleries. 

This gallery catalog covers our most recent contests. For earlier competitions, please see our companion catalog, Competition Winning Images Archives, where our  older competition galleries are displayed.

For specific details on Print Competitions and Digital Image Composition Challenges, please refer to our Photo Competitions and Digital Composition Challenges overview page. To see images from a specific competition, please select from the links below or from the menu to the left.
