Join Photo Contest Head Judge Paul Johnson as he goes over the winning photographs in this year's contest. He will make notes and briefly comment on what made certain photographs pop in comparison to others. For photographers, this should be an interesting learning experience on what it takes to move forward in a contest of this nature.

    Borrego Art Institute
    665 Palm Canyon Drive, Borrego Springs, CA 92004

We are pleased to again be partnering with Borrego Art Institute for the Gallery Display of the winning photographs in the contest. Take some time to peruse the place winners, honorable mentions, best of show, and all entries invited to submit a print.

Wine and refreshments will be generously provided by our partner Kesling's Kitchen. Judges and ABF staff will be on hand to answer questions about the contest. Winners will be able to pick up their ribbons that evening.

Photographs will be for sale at the gallery. If you purchase a place winner or honorable mention, the photograph must stay at Borrego Art Institute until the end of the show on March 1.

Thank you to our Contest Sponsors:
