We have friendly photography competitions once a month (8 times a year, plus an "End of Year" competition). Reminder we are also starting our meetings at 7pm and you have to enter thru the main doors, not the doors near the CAC auditorium like we used to.

Please refer to the NHCC handbook for questions, please download it from the NHCC website and read it, it is your responsibility to know the rules. The New Haven Camera Club expects that its members will adhere to the highest ethical standards when complying with its competition rules. It is especially important that all photographs entered into competitions be the exclusive work of the maker (except for commercially made prints or digital photographs scanned from a slide original allowed by the rules).

Highlights:

  • Mark a C next to any competition image that you would like critiqued
  • All aspects of the image must be taken by the photographer (Clipart, Textures, etc. are NOT permitted) (Except in the image artistry category where anything goes but the main image must have started with a photograph taken bby the photographer).
  • Images of a similar nature may not be submitted again once that image has won a ribbon.
  • The winning same image (or a very similar rendition taken at the same time) may not be submitted into a different competition or in a different season.
  • Please note that there are NO makeups
  • Please note that there no way to email images late if you have problems, so we urge you please do NOT to wait until the last minute to submit your photographs.
  • Setups (images where someone else set up the composition, or you "plug inot" lighting at a conference or workshop) are ONLY allowed in Class B

The NHCC has competitions in the following categories once a month (typically the 4th Monday of the month).

  • digital (open category) (2 entries per maker)
    • class A 
    • class B
  • digital (assigned subject) (1 entry per maker)

Instructions for uploading competition images

Please do not wait until late Friday night to discover that you need help.
For more information or questions contact Paul Peterson pmjpeterson@sbcglobal.net (individual members should NOT contact Jack, the author of the software that club uses, Jack will be contacted by Lisa or Paul only).

Number of entries per contest:

OPEN SUBJECT Each member may enter a maximum of 2 photographs into the open electronic competition in each of the 8 contests, for a year's total of 16 open electronic entries.
FYI, there is no need (and even a slight disadvantage) to choosing an assigned subject image for the monthly OPEN category. OPEN means anything goes.

ASSIGNED SUBJECT Each member may enter a maximum of 1 photograph into the Assigned Subject category in each of the 8 contests, for a year's total of 8 assigned subject entries.
Please note that the electronic image assigned subject competition is in addition to the regular OPEN subject (anything goes) monthly competition.

MONOCHROME Each member may enter a maximum of 1 photograph into image monochrome in each of the 8 contests, for a year's total of 8 image artistry entries

CREATIVE Each member may enter a maximum of 1 photograph into image artistry competition in each of the 8 contests, for a year's total of 8 image artistry entries.

CRITIQUE Each member may enter a maximum of 1 photograph into Image Critique in each of the 8 monthly contests, for a year's total of 8.

Cumulative Score is the sum total of all print or electronic photograph scores to date. At the end of the competition year the highest 6 - 12 scores of each maker (depending on the category) are summed to determine the cumulative score. Makers can compete in more than one category and can have cumulative scores in each category. These points will count toward an award for highest cumulative point total for the year presented at the Annual Dinner.

To be ranked in class B electronic open, the maker must have submitted at least 10 photographs (8 contests times 2 photographs per contest and you can have up to 6 zeros).

To be ranked in class A electronic open, the maker must have submitted a total of 12 photographs (8 contests times 2 photographs per contest and you can have up to 4 zeros).

To be ranked in image artistry, monochrome and/or Assigned Subject, the maker must have submitted a total of 6 photographs (8 contests times 1 photograph per contest, two zeros allowed).
