Shoot Off 2014

  • Feb 22, 2014 · 10:00 AM

This year we will be adding a little twist to each month's shoot-off. It may be a special rule, or an extended deadline, or something else. We'll announce the twist along with the topic the morning of the shoot-off.

About the Shoot-off:

At 10 a.m. a subject will be announced to the CPI Supporters who have RSVP'ed to this event via email and the event page. Supporters will have the deadline listed above to shoot, edit and upload up to 3 images from the assignment to a gallery hosted on our site. Any images submitted past the deadline will not be judged. When uploading images, please upload full resolution full sized images (we have had gallery shows with the winners before and having full sized prints makes the printing process easier).

Remember, this is a Shoot Off, not a submit off. All entries must be between 10am the day of the Shoot-off and the deadline.

A judge will be selected then choose the top three entries. Winners will be announced when the next shoot off begins.

This event will not require anyone to be present anywhere and entries can be submitted remotely. The contest topic will not be Charlottesville centric, so feel free to RSVP if you are planning on being out of town.

If you are having any trouble submitting, please contact Nick Silvester ([masked]) or Chris ([masked]) prior to the deadline. There will be no extension on the contest deadline and all rules listed must be adhered to.

This event is open to all CPI Supporters (paid members).

    Where are winners posted? The message board hasn't been updated since Aug. 2013. Thanks.

      You are totally right Cathy - we need to remedy that. We've had a shortage of manpower recently.

      No biggie Christian, it's a volunteer org. I just wondered if I was looking in the wrong place.

    I also thought the recovery was good. I didn't see the change until late in the afternoon, then the day just got away from month!

    A little tough on people who checked their mail at 10 only. But these thing happen. We have no control over illness, and it was a nice recovery.

      I'm quite sorry about that Jim, as the Shoot Off dropped into my lap at the last moment, and I didn't know what the previous month's shoot off had been. Totally my fault, and sorry for the run around.

      Not a complaint. Just an observation. And I hardly consider it your fault. I thought the recovery was excellent. I've been in situations like that and it can be no fun. Best regards, Jim

    Well, thanks guys...didn't get the message about the topic change.

    Well, I feel pretty silly - because January's topic was "Motion" (nobody tells me anything). So lets try this again!

    The February topic is "Something Old".

    Gallery stays the same:

    Sorry for the Mix up!

    Hi Folks -

    Nick is a bit under the weather at the moment, so I'm moonlighting for him. Today's Shoot Off Subject for February 2014 is "Motion".

    Have fun with it, and remember to submit you photos taken today, before 6:00 PM!

    You can post your images in this gallery:

    Happy shooting!
