Shoot Off 2014

  • May 31, 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 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).

    Ok, for the next Shoot Off (and all following Shoot Offs) we will open the contest at 10:00am, and close the contest at 10:00pm. You'll have a full 12 hours to submit your work!



    PS - Jim Demas is working on the judging right now, and the results will be posted soon.

    I would also like to propose pushing the deadline a couple of hours, especially during summer time. It would give us more time to shoot in late afternoon/early evening when the light is more pleasant.

    I couldn't make the deadline either. Next time!

    I seem to have to work during the last two meet ups. Wish the deadline was a little later

    Good Morning Shoot Off Shooters!

    Today's Shoot Off Subject for May 2014 is "Eyesore"

    • Have fun with it, and remember to submit you photos taken today, before 6:00 PM!
    • You can post your images in this gallery:

    "Eyesore" was selected by Jim Demas (the April Shoot Off Winner), and he will also be judging this month's Shoot Off, and posting the final results both in the "Shoot Off Winners Archive" located here: The May 1st place winner will get to select the topic for June, and will also act as a judge.

    Happy shooting!

    Hey Christian
    This sounds like fun but given my schedule tomorrow I'm got fingers crossed for an extended deadline!
    Any particular focus for the judging criteria?

    • Christian D.

      Hi Peter - no judging criteria, and the subject will be posted at 9:55 Sat morning. Jim Demas is picking this month's subject and will be judging it - have fun!
