2015 NWCCC Traveling Print Salon
Every year the Eastside Camera Club enters into the NWCCC Traveling Print Salon (Northwest Council of Camera Clubs). A set of prints from each participating NWCCC member club travels to 3 or 4 other participating clubs during the winter and spring months for judging. This is done by club members from each club voting for his or her favorite prints in each set of submitted prints. The maximum number of entries that can be entered per club is 25 and can include both monochrome and color prints. A minimum number of at least 5 prints, however, is required within each category. After the juried circuit is completed, the prints from each club with the highest number of total votes will be submitted to the NWCCC for judging by a select set of independent judges for final results. All prints selected for final judging will be displayed at the NWCCC spring conference and the awards will be announced during the conference.
General Rules for Club Competition
Maximum print and mat size is 16”x20”. Minimum print size is 8x10”.
All prints must be on firm support so they will stand erect. Masonite or other heavy mounting materials, frames or glass is not permitted. Mounting shall not be thicker then a standard double mat.
The print title, name of the club, and the makers name must be on the back of the mount, preferably in the top left corner. The title on the back of the print must agree with the entry form and in the correct image orientation. Maker’s name or print title cannot appear on the front side. Print titles need to be unique for bookkeeping purposes. “Untitled” is acceptable if you use “Untitled #1”, “Untitled #2”, etc. It is also important a maker not reuse print titles. Any prints that have previously won an NWCCC award are not eligible to re-enter.
“Monochrome” means “one color”. A monochrome or black-and-white print consists of one color on the white paper base (white is not a color but an absence of color). Generally the color is black (in various densities or tones from black through very light gray). It also may be black tones with a global tone, warm (brownish), cold (bluish), sepia, or any other color tone.
Prints can be standard or modified color.
