NHCC - photo competition images due Friday.

NHCC - photo competition images due Friday. 
  • Please refer to the NHCC handbook for questions, please download it and read it, it is your responsibility to know the rules. 
  • The New Haven Camera Club expects that its membership 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).
We have friendly photography competitions once a month (8 times a year, plus an "End of Year" competition)
    Highlights:
    • All aspects of the image must be taken by the photographer (Clipart, Textures, etc. are NOT permitted).
    • 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 are ONLY allowed in Class B
    • We compete images: digital (open category), digital (assigned subject), creative/image artistry and black and white (monochrome) once a month (4th Monday of the month). Please see our handbook which contains the rules and instructions for competing your images.
    • There is a one time registration with the Photo Contest Pro system in order to be able to upload your images for competition.
    • 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/UploadPictures3.aspx

    • Please do not wait until late Friday night to discover that you need help.

    Number of entries per contest:

    a. Each member may enter 2 prints into the "member's choice" photo display and contest each month.

    b. 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.

    c. Each member may enter a maximum of 1 photograph into assigned subject in each of the 8 contests, for a year's total of 8 assigned subject entries.

    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 A electronic photographs, 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).
