Trillium Photographic Club executive has made the decision to maintain the same procedure for submitting images to clinics as we have been using the past several years.

Members can submit up to 5 entries per clinic.  To be considered for photographer of the year, you need 4 Pictorial, 4 Nature but only 2 Creative photographs for the current season,  with no more than half of the same subject matter (birds, flowers, people etc.).  However, the proficiency determination are still based on your top 10 pictures, regardless of category.

Trillium Photographic Club uses a half-point system allowing scores eg:  7.5

The “Creative” photography category is defined as photography that “alters reality in an obvious manner”.  The alterations have to be obvious to someone who has not seen the unaltered photograph and go beyond simply brightening or darkening a portion of it, as burning or dodging is allowed even in the strict “nature” category.

As for “Nature”, titles are not to be “catchy” but simply the scientific or common names of the realistically portrayed and easily identified subject(s).  The definitions of the categories are on p.8 of our Handbook.

If you submit entries and have not received a personalized response within 48 hours, please write to remind us, while ensuring you wrote to the correct address.

Trillium Photographic Club will be moving to online submission of images to clinics.  Photographic year of 2018 – 2019, this process will make it easier for those entering images as well as those collating the images for judging.  The new Online Entry system will also provide a module for online judging of images by judges remotely when necessary.

Your executive will be working on documentation and testing of the online submission of images to clinics, over the next few months.  We plan to offer orientation sessions next year for our members to make the transition as comfortable as possible.

We appreciate the patience of our members while we navigate through this new process.
