The Click Off is a digital photo contest sponsored by the Mill Valley Art Commission and The Image Flow (a photographic learning center). Each participant drew from a hat one of five subject categories. The categories highlighted Marin County’s unique characteristics and subsequently revealed each photographer’s perspective. Between November 5-17 contestants, from Mill Valley and elsewhere, took an image that they believed best represented their subject category and received coaching from The Image Flow photographers. Cameras of all kinds were used, including cell phones.
All ages and skill levels were represented among the over seventy amateur and professional photographers. Those receiving awards for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and honorable mention in each category received gift certificates. Additionally, two Youth Awards, as there was a tie, for those under 15 and a Best in Show award were given.
Art professionals selected the winning images. The jury included Ed Carey, Director of Gallery 291, Michelle Grenier, Featured Mobile Photographer and Esther Vermeer, Award winner Creative Director.
