Submissions closed. Images being judged. Here’s how it works:
• CPI members, supporters, and friends submit images to a normal (free) “Weekly Weds” photo contest on Phoozl.com (must sign up to submit). The specified contest week is: Nov 20-27 for contest submissions, and all Phoozl.com Rules & Instructions apply (e.g., 3 max submissions per person). The contest theme is 'Portal'.
• NOTE: We have emailed all RSVPers with a direct link to the contest now that it is live. You will have until next Wed night (7:00pm EST) to submit entries.
• The online PhoozL contest will have it’s normal judge, but you will ALSO be judged separately by 4 CPI judges: Christian DeBraun, Nick Silvester, Rick Stillings, and Harald Johnson.
• CPI contest submitters (please make your identities known here once you have submitted) will have their own separate “mini contest” and will be reviewed by the CPI judges outside of the Phoozl.com contest (although some may be winners in both contests!).
• All CPI submissions to the Phoozl.com contest will be scored and judged by the CPI judging panel. Three winners and three honorable mentions will be chosen (each winner will be a unique person) and announced at the event, and *ALL* CPI submitters will have one (or more) of their images shown and discussed at the CPI event on Dec. 3, whether they are winners or not.
• There is no fee or cost to participate.
• Don’t forget: you’re competing globally but also being judged locally. How cool is that?!
Minimum of 6 and NO maximum number of attendees for this meeting. Even if you are not submitting to the contest, you are welcome to attend the event and take part in the judges’ reviews and discussions. The more the merrier (and instructive)!
6:30pm - 7:00: Arrive and settle in.
7:00pm - 9:00: Photo contest results countdown, judges’ critiques, comparing results and comments to the online contest, and discussions.
+ Winners’ Prizes at end!
