Image Evaluations

 

The Camera Club of Richmond offers six "Image Evaluations" to our members each year. CCR Members who have paid their annual dues ($40) are invited to submit one or Digital Images that will be reviewed and critiqued during designated Monthly Meetings.

 

Special Considerations for 2021

 

Due to the continuing prevalence of the Coronavirus and based on the CDC’s recommendations to minimize large gatherings and maximize Social Distancing, the Camera Club of Richmond will continue to hold “Virtual Image Evaluations” via Zoom Meetings through the first few months of 2021. 

 

This means that we are accepting DIGITAL FILES ONLY (jpg images) for our Monthly Image Evaluations until further notice.

 

This is our plan until your Board determines that it is safe for our club to return to in-person meetings. 

 

If it is NOT safe to meet in person until the end of Summer, we will hold a one-time “Print Evaluation” in September to allow Members to submit their prints and obtain feedback. (More info and specific guidelines will be sent at a later time.)

 

As far as our End of Year Competition goes, if things are conducive for an In-Person Print Competition, members will be allowed to convert any DIGITAL images submitted in prior Monthly Evaluations into PRINTS for the End of Year Competition. 

 

Please note: Our usual EOY Rules will apply in that an image submitted as a PRINT may not be entered again as a DIGITAL image.

 

 

For complete details on how to enter CCR’s Image Evaluations, please refer to CCR’s Image Evaluation Procedures.

 

At the beginning of each year, the CCR Board determines which Monthly Meetings will be “Image Evaluations”. In 2021, these months are: February, March, May, July, August, and September.

The Board also identifies three special "Assigned Subjects": special categories designed to challenge our photographers to tackle a new subject, category, or technique.

In 2021, those Assigned Subjects will be:

 

Back Light (May 12th)

 

Looking Up or Looking Down (July 14th)

 

Low Light (September 8th) 

 

See the CCR Meeting Schedule for more details.
