2023 End of Year Competition Information & Procedures



Your Board of Directors has met and finalized the details for our 2023 End of Year Competition with these important changes:  

  1. All images shall be submitted as Digital or Print images.
  2. You may submit prints in lieu of the digital photos submitted at the 6 evaluations this year or as Wildcard photos. 
  3. The deadline for submissions will be midnight, October 14, 2023.
  4. The judging will be held on November 11th.
  5. Our Awards Ceremony will occur on Tuesday December 5th.

Please review all the rules for Categories and the limits on alterations as spelled out in the EOY Competition Procedures (attached to the email you received and at the link below).  There are also three competition groups in 2023 (Novice/Intermediate, Advanced, and Expert), merit-based awards, and file naming is similar to 2022 except image Categories now have 2 letters and 'Standard Images' are now called 'Evaluated Images'.  This is all laid out in the EOY Competition Procedures.


The Camera Club of Richmond holds a competition at the end of each year to recognize and reward the work of our many talented photographers. 

We invite all dues-paying CCR Members to submit up to 12 photographs to compete for awards in several different Categories.  Up to five of those images may be “Wildcards” - images that have not been previously evaluated this year.

These images are due by midnight on the 2nd Saturday in October (the 14th) and judged by a panel of professional photographers on November 11, 2023. 

Awards are given at our CCR Awards Presentation which is always held in place of our regular CCR meeting on the first Tuesday in December (the 5th).

If you’re a seasoned veteran of CCR EOY Competitions (or simply want to save a tree!), you’ll be pleased to know that the EOY Procedures now feature a Table of Contents and Bookmarks to allow you to easily navigate through the online document to quickly find the specific sections you need.

If you are new to CCR and/or our End of Year Competition, you may want to print the following document to use as a reference to help you determine which photos you want to submit and how to prepare them for submission.
