Our Official Judges will be NISSAN’s Own Mr. Nakamura and 2 celebrity photographers.

To make this “efficient” knowing were on a “limited” budget we’ll all judge will be done via internet. 

We’ll ask members of the NYC Camera Club to do the initial judging so Mr. Nakamura and the others won’t have thousands of pictures to look at.  We’ll have the NYC Camera Club send the judges the top p 100 photos and the judges will select the top 10.

They will be announces the TOP 10 on the NISSAN  Blue Citizenship website and then our contest becomes like America Idol and we let people vote “ONLINE” for their favorite.   Giving this contest another month of “interest”.  Better we'lll communicate to all the camera/photo clubs to encourage their member to vote for the winner.  This is a LARGE community and we'll get them to our web site...  WOW!!!!
