Revision as of 12:05, 18 January 2009

Friendly, Moose, Spyglass and Steve by Sandra Nicol, overall winner of the 2008 Photography Competition.

Introduction

An annual tradition from the start of the VOC Journal (1958) until the mid-90's, the VOC Photography competition has always been a popular event where the winners actually get trophies (or what is left of them) !

Rules

Each person can submit six photographs. These can be broken up however you wish within the categories. You may submit one photo to each category, six pictures to one category, or any combination you wish.

Categories

  • A) Landscapes – Waterfalls, mountains, sunsets, etc. People are not the focus of the shot.
  • B) Action Shots – Photos of people outdoors and in action, usually climbing, skiing, or mountaineering.
  • C) Flora and fauna – Plants and animals only. A good place for macro's.
  • D) Club Activities – Parties, longhike, winter longhike, glacier school, and all other club activities.
  • E) Portraits – Portrait of a person. Preferably in an outdoor setting, and of someone in the club.
  • F) Misc – Anything that doesn't fit in the other categories.

In addition, there will be a photo chosen as the best overall entry.

2009

Judging: Photos will be judged by five members of the Executive – judges TBA


Prizes: The photograph chosen as best overall entry will be given a full colour page in the 2008/2009 VOC Journal. Other categories will have prizes for first place, and acknowledgements for runners-up. All winners and runners up, as well as other notable mentions will replace the current pictures on the VOC homepage. The winners and prizes will be announced during the VOC Banquet


Submission: Photos will be accepted only via the VOC gallery on the website. To submit your photo's click “edit” on the photo you wish to submit, and under “keywords” add “a-contest2009” for category A pictures (landscapes), “b-contest2009” for category B pictures (climbing, skiing, mountaineering), and so on. Due to the large numbers of photos, this will be the only accepted method. Also, please ensure you put the name of the photographer in the caption. If you've never used the VOC photo gallery, you can follow the instructions to get started.


Note: If you submit too many photos, we will remove them from the contest. If a photo is not in the correct category, it will be removed from the contest. Due to the large number of submission, the judges will not move incorrectly categorised photos to the correct category.


Deadline for submissions: All submissions must be submitted via the photo gallery by February 20th at 4pm, due to publishing deadlines for the VOC journal.
