Entries may be created by one or more of the following methods:

  1.     Camera movement. (Does not include panning to capture moving objects.)
  2.     The use of software, in which a photograph is altered to the point that it no longer reflects reality.
  3.     Photographing a subject in such a way that it becomes isolated from its context and where shapes, colors, lines, patterns, and textures predominate and provide primary interest. The context becomes unrecognizable and irrelevant.

Peer Review

Workshop

Here’s your opportunity to get friendly feedback on your images from your peers. Want some suggestions on how you might improve an image before entering it in a competition? Having some difficulty getting the “look” you want with lighting, composition, or editing? Want to understand more about why a judge may have scored an image as he or she did? Then you’ll find this casual and supportive meeting helpful. And, if you choose to join in evaluating the work of others and contributing your thoughts, you will likely strengthen your own picture-taking skills. Members of all skill levels are welcome, and of course you’re welcome to just attend the meeting and observe.

If you’d like feedback on your photos, upload up to three JPEGs (sized to 2000 pixels on the longest side) to the current peer review entry on the PhotoContest Pro website before the deadline.
(If you need help with that, check out the information available on the CCC website under Competition Info.)
