Welcome to North by Northwest Region 13

CANDID PHOTOS--over 5000 of them--were taken by our very talented photographers, Ed Lilley and Chris Wethered, over the course of our 2015 regional convention! YOU are probably in a couple of them! 

If you are interested in downloading your own copies, we've made that possible. Photos from contest weekend are sorted into 59 albums:  general photographs, plus an album for each chorus and quartet.

The cost?? This year we are going to try the Honor System and ask that you make a donation before (or after!) you download your photographs; it's easy using PayPal. We are relying on our members' judgements as to an appropriate amount to give, but know the more we receive, the more likely we will be able to hire a second candid photographer NEXT year!
