About the Competition

The Cambridge Camera Club Annual Digital Competition open to any Club or Society registered with the East Anglian Federation of Photographic Societies, but will be restricted to the first 35 applications received.

Each entry is to consist of a set of 5 images (to be assessed by the judge) plus a reserve image to be used in the event of a tie for 1st place. All 6 images must have been captured using a camera, but will most likely have been manipulated thereafter. The author of each image must have undisputed copyright of the work. Images will be judged on originality and creativeness combined with technical excellence. Each club representative submitting images takes responsibility on behalf of their club for the probity of all the images, and must assure themselves they have the consent of image authors for the submission, including the authors’ names, including their storage, processing and display for the purposes of the competition. Arrangements can be made for image submission under an author  pseudonym – please discuss in advance with the Digital Competition Co-ordinator.

Each image should have an embedded sRGB colour profile and be sized to fit at least, but not more than 1600px wide by 1200px high for projection.

The 5 rounds of the Competition are as follows:

  • Round 1: Monochrome Open (any subject)

  • Round 2: People

  • Round 3: Landscape

  • Round 4: Nature

  • Round 5: Open (any subject)

No more than two images may be from any one author. An author who is a member of more than one Club may contribute through one Club only.

The winning Club will be the one with the highest aggregate mark for all 5 images. In the event of a tie the reserve images of the leading clubs will be judged. A trophy for retention by the winning Club for one year will be awarded by Cambridge Camera Club. The Roy Pitman award will be made to the author of the best image in the competition.
