Halloween Photo Contest Community Judges

Images selected will be judged on subject matter, composition, how the enlarged image would read from the street and how it complements the other points of view.

Judith Pishnery

As the Executive Director at the Atlanta Photography Group, Judith serves as the chief operating officer of Atlanta’s oldest photography art center. Working closely with the Board of Directors, she directs and administers all programs, operations and policies, supervises professional staff and volunteers, along with providing curatorial oversight and management of all exhibitions.

In her former position as Photography Department Director at an Atlanta area college, Judith revamped the department with new computer classrooms, print labs, and put in place a streamlined equipment storage and checkout system. In addition to the physical changes in the department, the curriculum had been rewritten to include a solid technical and creative photographic base, along with an eye to current trends and techniques affecting a photographic career. She managed a team of 8 faculty members, a staff of 3 department employees, 3 federal work study students, 100+ students. Her other responsibilities included participation as a SkillsUSA advisor, Technical Chair and National Education Team member. 

As a professional photographer, Judith works on assignment for editorial, catalog, advertising and corporate clients. She provides exceptional customer service and outstanding value for her clients. She loves creating images and enhancing the assignment ideas and products, while being considerate of the clients’ needs, budgets and deadlines.

Not satisfied with just assignments, she has always had a variety of personal photography projects and learning enhancements in the works. Her personal photographic art works have been exhibited and collected throughout the South East. 

In addition, she has served on the board of APA/Atlanta (American Photographic Artists) and the Advisory Board of Atlanta Celebrates Photography (an annual photography festival). She has been involved on the Board of Directors of ACP since the early planning sessions in 1998. 

She currently resides in a small town outside Atlanta, not unlike where she grew up in Pennsylvania, with her husband and two dogs.

Keith Borow

From Los Angeles, California, Keith Borow has been a photographer for decades. After a long media career, he is now able to focus on art. Having many Little 5 Points Halloween Festival and Parade images of his own, the idea that there must be millions of other Festival images inspired him to propose his first exhibition, “19 Years Of Moments”, a public art space displaying large scale festival images in L5P merchant windows. Currently, focusing on urban landscapes and nature, you can see examples of his work on Instagram @keithborowphotography.
