Any photo entered during the bi-monthly contests will be eligible for submission in the “Image
of the Year” Contest which will be held in December.
The member would submit ONE image which represents their best work.
Members are free to make edits to improve the photo for submission at year end. Photo must be recognizable
as the original.
Photographer of the Year:
The club members who receive the highest TOTAL point scores for the year in each level will be named “Photographer of the Year.”
Points will be entered on spreadsheet
and a cumulative total would be tallied for each club member. The members receiving the highest overall point totals in each level will be named Tidelands Photographer of the Year, for that level. In the case of a tie, multiple “Photographer
of the Year” Awards will be given.
Each judge will assign each submission a numeric score between 1 and 15, where 1 is lowest and 15 is highest. The judge’s comments will be kept and offered at the contest meetings. The comments are intended to
help all members work toward improving their understanding andperformanceof the elements of photography.
