NJFCC Print Competition Guidelines
Print Competition Requirements
The subject matter of these competitions is open, so submit your very best work. This is an opportunity to stack your work up against that of other camera club members in the state. Accepted entries are scored independently by three judges. The reported score is the accumulated total of the three judges. No critique is provided.
There are two categories of print competition - Color and B&W - with one level of competition in each. Thus, beginner intermediate and advanced works are judged against each other in the respective category. Up to three entries per maker, in Fall and Spring competition are permitted. See note below for Tops competition.
Entries must be submitted at the designated CdCC club meeting. The CdCC print competition chair will select club entries from the submitted images, up to the club's limit of 24 entries per category. Priority will be given to the best image from each maker. Any remaining slots will be filled based on merit. Prints not selected for submission to the NJFCC may be resubmitted at a future competition..
Note: The once per year Tops in New Jersey competition allows one print per maker. The print does not need to have been entered into any previous competition to be eligible for Tops, and if entered, it need not have received an award. A print may only be entered into a Tops competition one time.
Please check the calendar on this web site for NJFCC competitions.
Results are published in the NJFCC newsletter, Cable Release.
