Monticello Photo Show - the 15th and FINAL photo show
The 15th and FINAL Monticello Photo Show will be held on March 17-18, 2018. Yes, this will be the last year that we put on our photo show. In this final year, we have relocated to the conference room of the Best Western in Monticello MN located at 89 Chelsea Road, Monticello, MN. Look for our show in this new location.
Our contest is held in cooperation with the Monticello Best Western. They have kindly stepped up to offer us the use of their conference room to hold the show. Without their facilities, we could not put on the 2018 Monticello Photo Show. Please show your appreciation by patronizing their business, as well as our other sponsors listed below.
All levels of photographers are welcome to submit their work; from beginners, to students, hobbyists, amateurs and professionals. The Monticello Camera Club provides an opportunity for a variety of community photographers to have their work on display for the general public’s viewing enjoyment, both at the show event and for the weeks following the show within the community.

Thanks to all who participate in our annual photo show. Without you and our camera club volunteers who work hard each year to put on the show, we would not have a show.
We want to offer special THANKS to our premier business sponsor for 2018 – Monticello Best Western. Without their support, it is likely we couldn't bring this event to you for 2018.
Thanks also to Sherburne State Bank and TEAM Chiropractic for hosting our advertising signs! Thanks to Finders Keepers for helping to collect photo entries. Please show them your appreciation as well.
And, we want to thank all of YOU, our loyal patrons of this event. Without you, the viewing and voting public, this event would not be successful. We hope to see you at our 2018 show.
Thank you to our Monticello Camera Club volunteers who organize this photo show. Without their willingness to pitch in, we couldn't put on this show.

Photo Show Advice
Q: Where can I find foam core boards?
A: A lot of you have been asking where you can find the foam core for mounting your photos. Walmart carries foam core and it is usually found in their craft area near where tag board can be found (I believe). Other stores that might carry it would be JoAnn Crafts, Michaels, or other craft or photo related stores. Walmart stores are probably the most easily accessible place to find it though and the least expensive. In addition, the dollar store located next to Walmart in Monticello also carries foam core sheets.
Q: Where can I find the adhesive foam core boards?
A: I found them on-line at Dick Blicks and at Office Depot. There are other sources you can find on-line as well but the two I have provided have stores that can be found in our area as well. You might be able to call their stores and see if they have them there rather than waiting for delivery from their on-line store. Just click on the links provided here to get the information needed. These are just resources that I have found and are not necessarily recommendations, just information.
Q: How do I mount a print to foam core?
If you have other questions, we'll try to address those here.

2011 Monticello Photo Show Video
The video below was done in 2011 by students at St. Cloud State (Jill Zimmerman and Jason Swanson) for display on the Charter Cable channel in St. Cloud. They did a great job on it. Some of our members are in the video and others have photos displayed in it. Check it out by clicking here or on the image below.
