Competitions – General Information
Digital Competition Handbook (see Members Only Portal for a copy)
There are four digital image competitions during the club year. Points earned in the competitions will accumulate toward annual Club Awards for each group. In addition, there may be inter- or intra-club competitions. Scores in flower competitions do not count towards regular club awards since they have their own awards. Further information is available in the Digital Competition Handbook.
Please note: due to the uncertainties with COVID-19, physical distancing and the handling of physical medium, the Print Competitions have been postponed for this club year.
Digital Competitions offer members an opportunity to compete at one of three levels (Entrant, Intermediate or Advanced). The level at which each member competes is generally determined by points accumulated in prior club competition. The level of each new member is determined based on a review of the member’s images.
Within each level, there are four categories: Pictorial, Nature, Natural Things and Creative, along with a theme which is available and mandatory in the third competition only.
As per the Digital Competition Handbook, the themes for 2022-23 are as follows (detailed descriptions are in the Digital Competition Handbook):
– Competition 1: Humorous Images
– Competition 2: Long Exposure Photography
– Competition 3: Urban/Street/Cityscape
Members may submit images in more than one category but are normally limited to a total of three images per competition. There is an exception whereby an image that is found to be mis-categorised in a competition may be resubmitted as a fourth image in the subsequent competition during the competition year.
There is also one flower competition, The Maurice deCunha competition, in which all members compete at the same level. For all these details and more, please see the Digital Competition Handbook (see Members Only Portal for a copy). Comments or questions on Digital Competitions can be communicated to the Digital Competition Team Chair, Sandro Del Re, at any meeting or by sending an email to: email@example.com.
Due to the uncertainties with COVID-19, physical distancing and the handling of physical medium, the Print Competitions have been postponed for this club year.
