How are competitions judged?

All competition entries in a first round are scored from 1 to 7, with a 7 score advancing  to the next round to be re-scored a 7, 8 or 9. Those scored 8 get an Honorable Mention award while those scoring 9 receive a Merit Award. There are no limit on the number of awards

How do I submit photos for competitions?

We use a commercial software product called Photo Contest Pro. Once you have joined the club and given us your email address, we configure an account that you can use to access the software. To validate the account, go to http://www.photocontestpro.com/UploadPictures.aspx, click “Log In” in the upper right corner, and enter a password that you can afford to have a few administrators know. After validation, use the same web page to submit photos. If you’re a Mac user, click on “Submit Pictures Method 2”. Method 1 is often unreliable on a Mac. If you use Windows, either method works, but you have to install the PcpSubmitPictures plugin/PC program to use Method 1. Method 2 is an entirely web based method and works well.
