TriClub Competition

Once again we will be competing in the Tri-club competition with the Upper Cape Camera Club and the Carver Camera Club. There are 25 categories, each club enters one image per category and the competition judge scores the three images in each category 1, 2 or 3. At the end of the competition, the scores are added up and the lowest scoring club wins. There are a couple of key rules. For our club we cannot enter more than one image per maker, there must be 25 different photographers in our final selections. The other rule is that the images must be taken between September 1, 2015 and the cutoff for entry. If by chance you are a member of more than one of the three clubs, enter only in the smallest club.

We will have a critique night to give feedback and determine where we need more images. For this preview you can bring unmatted prints. The larger the better for viewing, at least 8 x 10. For the critique you can bring more than one print per category and as many categories as you want.

For final submission to the club for consideration, you can submit one image per category, for a max of 25.  This will be done online this year, and members will also vote online to select the winners in each category.

After the voting is done, only one of your images can be selected as a finalist. The board will meet to resolve any ties and to meet the one image per maker requirement.  If one of your images is selected, you will need to mat it in a mat that is 16 X 20 inches outside dimensions and be on a foam backer board, to be provided, they must not be framed.  You may use a plastic bag for transport, but they will be removed for judging.
