Early this morning I attempted to post an update to the Daffodil Photography Contests, but apparently ws not successful because I can't find it anywhere! Just in case you have not received my update, here is a re-written version! And if you've already received the update, then I apologize for repeating it.

UPDATE:

1. The Richmond Daffodil Show has been canceled for this year! But continue photographing this challenging flower because...
2. ...The next RICHMOND Daffodil Photo Contest will be NEXT YEAR, i.e. April 3, 2021....
3. ...The WASHINGTON Show is still on, and we are going! So...
4. ...I will be collecting entries for that competition up until April 13, 2020! Which means you can give them to me at the next CCC meeting!
5. The Richmond entries will be entered in the Washigton show, unless you tell me otherwise.

NB. The "Portraits" class description which I gave you earlier is way out of date, obsolete, incorrect, just plain wrong. So sorry. It should read:
"portraits of daffodils [eithr one flower or MULTIPLES of the same cultivar.]

Please contact me if you have any questions.

It's official. The Washington Daffodil Show has also been canceled!

But there will be a show next year, so I hope you are able to get out and take beautiful photos to enter then.
