Some Changes In Image Competition Rules

7/2/2004 4:09:00 PM

John Bohner has agreed to become chairman of the slide committee for the coming year.  This is very good news for the Club.  John is an able organizer and great competitor in the slide divisions.  I look forward to seeing some innovations in the way the competitions are run and the results recorded.

At the board meeting last Monday several changes in the image competition rules were approved by the board.  These changes are for all divisions and are intended to streamline the rules, to bring them more into conformance with each other. There is also an attempt to encourage newcomers to get involved without feeling intimidated, frightened, or anxious.  These rules will start to apply at the first competitions for the new year to be held in September (the first September meeting for slides, the second September meeting for prints and digital projections).  I am alerting you here so that you can start making plans now.  More details will be forthcoming from the committee chairmen responsible for the competitions.

In all divisions, an image may be declared "no score."  This means that the image will be displayed like any other, and the judge will make comments about the image but will not assign a numerical score.  Such "no score" images will of course be ineligible for honors or awards.

Another innovation will effect slides.  Each individual slide may be entered as Color, Nature, Photo Journalism, or Photo Travel.  Each competitor may enter up to four slides per evening, and they may be all in one division or spread across several divisions.  There will be a single competition with slides coming from all the divisions.  In other words, the slide competition will operate in the same way as the print and digital projection competitions.

It was also decided to ask judges to bring a few samples of their work (4 or 5) to show us their ideas about good images and how they evaluate them.  This should be an interesting innovation.

We are in a trial period with the new rules.  We will see how they work out, and make adjustments as needed down the line.  More details will be forthcoming.

See you at the meeting Monday, July 26. Specifics about the four new workshops planned for the new year will be presented.
