Competition Themes 2020

During 2020 we challenge our members with six (6) competitions throughout the year and an "End Of Year" competition at year's end.

All members are encouraged to take photos for the purpose of entering the competition rather than trawling their catalogue for images that match the set theme.  The purpose of the competitions is to inspire creativity and to challenge members to produce quality images for the purpose of entry. With each set subject we will also include an Open category pool. In the open category you are permitted to enter any image for consideration.

A reminder that both Print and Digital entries require a digital copy be sent to the competition steward with the print delivered to the meeting when the entries are due.  

The subject descriptions may evolve over time.

1. Monochrome and Open

Often called "black and white" our monochrome competition is quite the 'open' subject. The only rule is your image must contain only one tonal range. Entries into this competition will also be up for consideration for the Knox Interclub competition later in the year.

Entries due: February 11, 2020 - Our first meeting for the year

See our  Pinterest board for Monochrome

2. Looking Down and Open

About perspective, capture a scene that will satisfy the description "Looking Down".

Entries due: March 24, 2020

See our Pinterest board for Looking Down inspiration.

3. Blue and Open

Blue... is it the colour? Is it an emotion? How will you interpret "blue"?

Entries due: May 12, 2020

4. Autumn and Open

The colours of autumn when captured correctly are sublime. Beautiful earth tones should be beaming through your frame. Show us what Autumn means to you.

Entries due: June 23, 2020

5. Movement and Open

Panning, freezing movement, stroboscopic imagery, anything that conveys motion in your image will work for us.

Entries due: August 11, 2020

6. People Portraits and Open

Capture the people around you. Show us their lived experience in your work. Ensure you're bringing us an image that will make us feel something about your subject or tell us about their life.

Entries due: September 22, 2020

End of Year Competition - Open

Entries for the End of Year Competition must have been entered in one of the earlier competitions in 2020. It doesn't have to have earned a placing, just been entered. You are free to make changes to the image, however it must be entered in the same format it was entered previously.    

Entries Due: October 27, 2020.  

Members who require further clarification are encourage to contact us for more clarity on any subject via See the  Competition Rules for full details of entry requirements.
