End of Year Competition Information & Procedures - Any Changes for 2022 to be Announced Later



Your board of directors has met and finalized the details for our 2021 End of Year Competition with these important rule changes:  

  1. All images shall be submitted as DIGITAL images. They will be judged digitally also. We apologize, but due to the pandemic, there will be NO Print Competition this year.
  2. The deadline for submissions will be October 16, 2021 by midnight.
  3. The judging event will be done virtually on November 13th, with an Awards Ceremony on December 8th (our regular meeting night).

Please review all the rules for Categories (e.g., 'Wildlife' has been renamed 'Animals') and the limits on alterations as spelled out in the EOY Competition Procedures (attached to the email you received and see linked below).  There are also three competition groups in 2021 (Novice/Intermediate, Advanced, and Expert), merit-based awards, and file naming has changed.  This is all laid out in the EOY Competition Procedures.

This is the best, safest solution to having our competition while keeping everyone as safe as possible.


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.  You are allowed up to 5 images (called Wildcards) that have not been previously evaluated this year.

These images are due by midnight on the 3rd Saturday in October (the 16th) and judged by a panel of professional photographers – usually from outside the Richmond area – on November 13, 2021. 

Awards are given at our CCR Awards Presentation which is always held in place of our regular CCR meeting on the second Wednesday in December (the 8th).

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.
