We want to thank Culvers and Conway Law Offices for hosting our advertising signs.

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 again this year.

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 each year.

Photo Show Advice

Q: Where can you find foam core boards?

A: A lot of you have been asking where you can find the foamcore 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 foamcore for $1 per sheet.

Q: What about the adhesive foam core boards?

A: I found them online at Dick Blicks and at Office Depot. There are other sources you can find online 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 online 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 mount a print to foam core?

A: Here's a couple of links to help you out. Here's a tutorial on youtube to do it using spray adhesive. This link shows how to use various techniques to adhere photos to foam core. This video tutorial shows how to mount a photo using the self adhesive photo boards.

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.
