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)
    • class A
    • class B
  • creative/image artistry (1 entry per maker)
    • class A
    • class B
  • Monochrome (1 entry per maker)
    • class A
    • class B
  • Image Critique (no scores, just feedback, especially useful for new members, or new techniques, open to ALL members) (1 entry per maker)
Upload your images to the monthly contest before the competition deadline (competitions are the fourth Monday, deadline is the Friday before the Monday) competition).
http://www.photocontestpro.com/Default.aspx

There is a one-time registration with the Photo Contest Pro system in order to be able to upload your images for competition.

For more information or questions contact Paul Peterson pmjpeterson@sbcglobal.net

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).

Feb 11th 7pm for the program "Creating Your Photography Book: Design and Publishing" by George Fellner

Feb 11th 7pm NHCC program Creating Your Photography Book: Design and Publishing

Join us at NHCC Feb 11th 7pm for the program "Creating Your Photography Book: Design and Publishing" by George Fellner

NHCC meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Mondays at 7:00pm (September thru May) at the Whitney Center, Cultural Arts Center, 200 Leeder Hill Drive, Hamden. Come ~6:30 to socialize. For more information please contact Paul Peterson pmjpeterson@sbcglobal.net

Photographers may sometimes ponder the notion of potentially creating a photography book. There are certainly numerous components to consider and many options to evaluate. This presentation explores the initial spark for a book idea, theme and message, along with the development of contents. A review of format, text, image, layout, and associated criteria is presented and the bookmaking process is outlined. Traditional publishing is discussed along with the strategies for submission. In turn, self-publishing is presented with design/layout options, example features, format, content requirements, text specifics, image specifics, and importing information. The mindsets for cover design, book review, and basic strategies are discussed along with a case study. In addition, there is an outlined review of the upload process for both printed books and eBooks, as well as a discussion about selling platforms. Marketing strategies are also reviewed. Ultimately, the intent of this presentation is to demystify the processes and to inspire photographers interested in the design and publishing of a photography book.


George Fellner, photographer and architect, is committed to a dual life-path involving visual discovery and design, relating to both the natural and built environments. He has been presenting photography programs to camera clubs, art guilds, professional organizations, historical societies, community groups, and schools since 2004.

Inspired by his travels as well as his involvement with photo essays, George’s photographic subjects include landscape, architecture, travel, and elements of nature. The prime focus of his work Imaginary Realms reveals an endless exploration of the abstractions of reality and the infinite universe. His process involves the macro photography of stones and crystals, offering limitless material for evocative images and inspirational meaning. His passion for photography was sparked while studying architecture and design. George received his Bachelor of Architecture degree from Virginia Tech and his Master of Architecture degree from the University of Florida. Now, with 30 years as principal of Fellner Associates Architects, he continues to utilize his design sensitivities for creative photography.

George’s photographs have been published in books, journals, magazines, newspapers, and travel guides. INK Publications magazine (Feb 2013) featured the article Photographer George Fellner: Architect for Body and Spirit. The book Artists’ Homes and Studios (2015) by E. Ashley Rooney features George’s studio, art, and creative process. He also recently wrote and published his first book Imaginary Realms: The Visual Language of Stones and Crystals (2016).

George’s limited edition prints have been exhibited in art galleries and museums, both in group shows and solo shows. A series of his images are also exhibited in permanent art collections at the Yale School of Medicine, the Jackson Laboratory at the University of Connecticut, and the NYC offices for Nature Genetics, an international science journal.
