The May Photo Contest

Submissions for the May 2021 Photo Contest are due tomorrow, May 27th! We will have our voting events on Friday, May 28th at 6pm and Saturday, May 29th at 12pm SLT! See you there! ♥

As always, please either send your photo to Angelathespian in-world, or leave it at the drop box outside of the main FOCUS Gallery on the Holly Kai sim! The drop box is a red mailbox where you can drag your photos inside. If you have any questions, please contact Angela or Cesar Lighthouse. ♥

The Answer is 42(00)!

Can you believe it? FOCUS had over 4200 visitors to the FOCUS Photography Fair in May 2021! The FOCUS Photography Fair is the very first and ONLY fair created in SL especially for SL photographers. We featured vendors with tech, expertise and other goodies to assist every SL photographer to enhance their craft. We worked hard to get the word out and our work paid off! Many thanks for Briony Writer for her write-up of the Focus Photography Fair for Seraphim and to Fynnys who wrote an article for the SL Enquirer. Also, many thanks to our vendors! We had an amazingly FUN and successful fair! Stay tuned about dates for the next one! ♥
