Our Club Competitions offer no monetary prizes, ribbons or awards. We find there is more value in the feedback we receive from our colleagues & outside critics. Regardless of our personal photography experience, competitions bring us together to challenge our technique, encourage a different perspective and take-in some extraordinary images.

This first Digital Club Competition of our year offered three Categories. Members were allowed to enter no more than 3 images per category. The photographer remained anonymous as images were projected on a screen for all to view while judges assigned point values to each image. Judges also shared their reasons on why they scored certain images as they did.  

All projected images were judged on a 5-4-3-2-1 scale with “5” being the highest score and “1” being the lowest score. With a total of three judges, the highest score for an image could be 15. The assignment of scores, competition rules and further information pertaining to Club Competitions can be found in the Competition Guidelines.
