President's Latest Message

A question has arisen about the new "non-scoring" option.

11/22/2004 8:30:13 AM
A question has arisen about the new "non-scoring" option.  This option is intended to provide a stress-free method for members new to competition to show images and receive the benefit of the judges comments without the possible "trauma" of being scored in public.  It is expected that after an initial series of entering non-scoring images, the new member may decide to fully participate and receive scores for all images.  However, there is no requirement for this to occur.  Each participant should decide for themselves what is most comfortable.

At present, slides may be judged as Color, Nature, Photo-travel, or Photo-journalism.  Each participant may enter up to 4 slides per competition.  The participant declares, for each slide, whether it is to be judged using the rules for Color, Nature, Photo-travel, or Photo-journalism, and whether that slide is to be scored or not by the judge.  These declarations may be assigned in any manner to the slides.  However, the total number of slides per competition is still limited to a maximum of 4.

At present, electronic images (digital projected images) may be judged as Color, Nature, Photo-travel, Photo-journalism, or Creative.  Each participant may enter up to 2 images per competition.  The participant declares, for each slide, whether it is to be judged using the rules for Color, Nature, Photo-travel, Photo-journalism or Creative, andwhether that image is to be scored or not by the judge.  These declarations may be assigned in any manner to the images.  However, the total number of images per competition is still limited to a maximum of 2.

I think that the difference in the number of slides or images allowed per competition (4 vs. 2) has contributed to the misconception that 2 additional non-scoring electronic images may be entered if they are non-scoring.  That may not be a bad idea, but it has not been incorporated into the rules as yet.  The Board would appreciate very much hearing about ideas for altering the rules of competition.  The competitions are held for all the members and should serve our needs and desires.  Lets keep it fun.

I hope this has helped clarify things a little.

Bill
