October Competition - Technology plus a Special Guest Judge

This month we will have the following competition categories: Assigned Theme - Technology, Open and Black and White.

Competition entry is limited to the PAID members. The meeting is open to all members, paid and online for viewing and discussion.  

Assigned Theme: Technology 

Even though technology may generally refer to something that is “high-tech”, it can be defined as “tools one has to do a job”.

This month Jim Caldwell will join us as a guest and lead the critique and judge the prints.  Jim started shooting editorially in college and immediately following graduation he went to work for Rice University. A few years later, Jim went out on his own as a freelancer, picking up editorial clients like Time, Newsweek, and Texas Monthly. He has been asked why he likes editorial work so much to which he responds: “For me it’s like going on the world’s greatest field trip, I get to see what makes business tick; photography in advertising is a collaborative creative process that I find very stimulating". Versatility and vision are the keys to Jim’s photography. Creating images that tell the stories of businesses to the world is a unique gift that he brings to life. www.jimcaldwellpro.com.

General Rules

Maximum number of prints that can be entered is 5, with a maximum number in any one category of 2.

The entries can be split between any of the three categories as long as there are no more than 2 entries in any one category.

We must have 5 or more Black and White images entered in order to have a complete category. Otherwise, the images, at the discretion of the photographer can be moved to the Open category or reserved for future competitions.

We hope to see all members, those interested in learning about the club and those wishing to share their vision of photography and image making, come join us.

    Gary is correct. The maximum number of prints that can be entered is four with no more than two per category. This is the way it has always been and the way it is written up in the constitution and bylaws. If there are fewer than 5 prints then they are folded into the open category and judged there with all of the other open prints. If you don't win a ribbon in a category for your print nothing precludes you from entering that print in a future competition. Only winning a ribbon prevents you from entering a print a second or third or fourth time.

    So with 3 categories you should be able to have 6 prints..ie 2 per category. If you are only allowed 5 prints, 2 per category doesn't make sense .Can someone explain?

      I thought we had discussed at the beginning of the year that with the addition pf black and white that we would allow 5 prints with no more than 2 per category.

    The reference to "5" is not the number of prints allowed to be entered by a member, that is still four with no more than two in any one category. If there is less than five prints total entered into a category then that category will be closed and not judged. i.e. Should only four prints be entered into the black and white category then the black and white category would not be judged and ribbons would not be rewarded.
