Shoot Off 2016

  • Nov 26, 2016 · 10:00 AM

About The Shoot Off:

At 10 a.m. a subject will be announced to the CPI Members and 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.

The deadline for images is 12:00 MIDNIGHT the same day (14 hours to submit your photos)

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 10:00am the day of the Shoot-off and the deadline of 12:00 MIDNIGHT.

The previous month's 1st place winner will select the topic, and will also be the judge for the Shoot Off. That judge will select then choose the top three entries, and the process repeats itself. Winners will be announced in the Shoot Off Winners Archive.

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 Members and Supporters (paid members).

Have fun, and good luck!

      Sorry Christian. I still struggle to find the right place to go for the information. Hate to be a bother. I'll do better in the future. Didn't even see your earlier post to *read* it.

      No worries Leelee - I always post the link right in the body of the message. You can always use the navigation bar (up above), and simply go to photos as well. Then just look for the album labeled "Shoot Off" for that month. Have a great day! :-)

      That's what happens when you pick an awesome subject matter. My fav so far! I think you're the one that got challenged most with this challenge!

      Hi, Christian, just an FYI that I didn't get an email about today's shoot-off. It's my first time, so perhaps I goofed somewhere in the process, but I have an email listed in my meet-up profile and am listed as having RSVP'ed . . .

    • Christian D.

      Sorry Susan - but the email did go out. Check your Meetup settings and good luck! :-)

    Today's Shoot Off Subject for November 2016 is "Textures"

    • Have fun with it, and remember to submit your photos taken today, before 12:00 MIDNIGHT!
    • The 12:00 MIDNIGHT deadline is a hard and fast rule, no exceptions!
    • You can post your images in this gallery:
    • http:// NOTE FROM Jill: TEXTURES
    We see them everywhere... from a. loved one's hair or wrinkles, to the leaves on the sidewalk, or the macro shots of anything... what is texture to you? How do you make it the focal point of your photo.. give it a shot! (Pun intended).

    Good Luck!
