End of Year Competition Information & Procedures



Your board of directors has met and finalized the details for our 2020 End of Year Competition with these important rule changes:  

  1. All images shall be submitted as DIGITALimages. They will be judged digitally also. We apologize, but due to the pandemic, there will be NO Print Competitionthis year.
  2. The deadline for submissions will be October 17, 2020 by midnight.
  3. The judging event will be done virtually on November 14th, with a Virtual Awards Ceremony on December 9th(our regular meeting night).

If you have previously submitted an image to be evaluated as a print, you may submit it as a digital for the EOY Competition.  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).  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 3rdSaturday in October (the 17th) and judged by a panel of professional photographers – usually from outside the Richmond area – on November 14, 2020. 

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 9th).

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.
