Kristin Shauck, Founding Director of Au Naturel, contacted us to let all in our group know about the annual international competition Au Naturel: the Nude in the 21st Century it is put on by the Art Center of Clatsop Community College in Astoria, Oregon. Oregon may be quite a ways from San Diego, but check out their site for their guidelines for competing in their event. Awards are $1000 in cash prizes and up to $2000 in purchase awards.
