Digital Photography Competition




ARCHcon stands for Anime, Role Playing Games, Comics and Hobbies convention. Through the years, ARCHcon has had a very niche market that stemmed from board game enthusiasts branching out to all the different hobbies that we have now! It has now cultivated a local community of photographers, cosplayers, artists, gamers, figure collectors, computer enthusiasts & builders, trading card and board game enthusiasts, game creators and still continues to develop all range of hobbies up until today!

The theme for the photography competition is about that community. We are looking for an image that would represent the craftsmanship and the showcasing of any specific or general representation of the ARCHcon community ranging from any time period.
