In addition, 2 electronic photographs may be submitted to a special landscape/seascape competition for the Joe Dichello Memorial Award and 2 electronic photos may be submitted to a special nature competition for the Jane Sibley Honor Award.

The images on these photographs must have been entered in one category of competition (prints, open electronic photographs, or assignment electronic photographs) during the year; those originally entered as prints must be converted to electronic photographs to be entered in these special competitions.

3. Each photograph may be entered only once in an end of the year competition.

If a photograph is entered in one of the Open category competitions it may not be entered in either the Joe Dichello Landscape/Seascape or the Jane Sibley Nature special competitions.

If a photograph is entered in either the Joe Dichello or Jane Sibley special competition it may not be entered into the other special competition or one of the Open category competitions.

4. Judging: By 3 outside judges.

Each class is judged separately using the in-out method of scoring
(score of 1 signifying “in” and a score of 0 signifying “out”), no comments.

In the first round all photographs that receive two or three "ins" will advance to the second round of judging.

In the second round only those photographs receiving three "ins" will advance to the final round.

Judges will select a first, second, and honorable mention from those photographs receiving three "ins". If in the second round only two photographs receive three "ins", the judges will pick a first and second place from those two photographs. An honorable mention will be selected from those photographs receiving two "ins".

If only one photograph receives three “ins” it will automatically be given first place. A second and honorable mention will be chosen from those photographs receiving two "ins".

5. Electronic Photographs: After first, second, and honorable mention photographs are chosen in each class (B and A), the two first place photographs (one from each class) will be judged against each other for electronic photograph-of-the-year.

On Saturday May 22 there will be a New Haven Camera Club field trip to the Bronx Zoo. The triplet baby lion cubs are now out for the public to see from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM and I am sure we will all want to try to get some winning shots of them.

We will carpool to the Bronx and meet at the commuter parking lot at Exit 58 off the Merritt Parkway at 9:00 AM.

And just a reminder to put in your reservation for the Annual Awards banquet on Monday May 24th at 6:00. Forms will be available at the May 10th meeting or you can print off the form from the blog and send it to me. The cost is $32 a person, checks made out to New Haven Camera Club. And the deadline for sending your electronic entries to Paul is Wednesday May 19th. Hope to see you all there.
