Print Co-Chairs, Pam Fogarty & Margaret White
I would like to welcome all of the new and returning members to the 2019-2020 season.
We had an amazing season last year, especially since the MCC joined CAPA. Many of our club’s submissions ranked high in CAPA’s competitions. I’d like to suggest that members use this year’s CAPA competition categories to test your photos in front of our judges. Let’s showcase some of our talents in Print competitions!
We continue to strive to make the Print Division more enjoyable for all, competitors and audience alike. The Print Competition evening is divided into two parts. Judging takes place in a second location in the church while the membership at large enjoys a scheduled Club program in the main hall, such as a lecture or educational presentation.
Results of the Print Competition are presented in the main hall during the second half of the evening. The prints are showcased on the lightbox for the judges and on the screen for the members. The judges’ comments are then heard, which is an important aspect of the competition.
For more info about the Print Competitions:
We created the new Print Competitions Handbook for you to reference. Please take the time to review this document
It will give you all the information you need about Print Competitions. You are welcome to contact me directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions.
Revised Print Competition information from the 2019-2020 cameragram
There are five competitions held each year, two in the fall and three in the winter/spring. At the end of the season, there is a competition for Print of the Year – one for each category: Colour, Monochrome, Creative (both Altered
Reality, and Enhanced Reality), and Theme.
Creative – This category has now been split into two sub‑categories for judging purposes. Any points earned in these two sub-categories are entered as Creative. Images in both of these sub-categories are created using the same techniques, and are generally composites of several images.
While an Altered Reality (AR) image is understood to be fictional in subject matter, an Enhanced Reality (ER) image appears to be a single photograph taken of a real (not a fantastical) subject, and not a composite created using several images and techniques.
