The unlimited and novice best in show wins a free club membership respectively.

Competition rules, which include how to prepare your print entries are also posted on our web-site

  • Mono and Color Prints –
    • Prints must be matted.
    • The print and mat assembly may not exceed 20”in size on the longest edge.
    • The contestant’s name, picture title, category, class, and contest date (month/year) must appear on the back of each print.
    • PLEASE include an arrow on the back of the image to reflect orientation.
  • Digital –
    • Email your digital entries in by Tuesday evening. Remember that the email address to send your digital entries to is
    • Send your images as email attachments. Mac users need to put their images in a zip file and attach the zip file to the email.
    • Resize your images to 1024 pixels on the long side (1024 x ??? or ??? x 1024).
    • Files should be named according to the following convention:
    • A class identifier, ‘n’ for novice or ‘u’ for unlimited, should prepend the file name and be followed by an underscore.
    • The image name should appear next. For multi-word titles, it is helpful to either capitalize the first letter of each word or separate each word with an underscore. Although most mechanisms of upload-ing/transferring/emailing files handle spaces in titles, this is not universal. If you have problems sending files with space-separated titles, try the methods mentioned above instead.
    • An underscore and the owner’s first and last initials should follow the title.
    • Finally, make sure the file extension (.jpg) exists.
    • Examples: Here are file name samples using the above convention:
      • u_BridgeOnTheRiverKwai_cb.jpg
      • u_bridge_on_the_river_kwai_cb.jpg
      • n_thistitleisveryhardtoread_cb.jpg
      • n_some have trouble with this_cb.jpg
    • We will send you an email to confirm we have received your images and that they are named and sized appropriately. If you do not receive a confirmation, please contact the contest chairman at
    • If all else fails, you may bring your images to the meeting on a USB drive, but we may not be able to put them into the contest.

Good luck and see you Wednesday night.
