Club competitions are held each month. External judges are normally invited to assess members’ work, although from time to time club members take on this task. Each competition has an open subject and, from time to time, set subject competitions are also included – check the syllabus for dates.
Members may enter two sections – Prints and Electronic Digital Images (EDIs). The set subject competition entries are submitted as EDIs.
Members submit their EDIs and digital versions of their Print entries by email to the Competitions Subcommittee. If you do not have the Competitions Subcommittee’s email address, Contact Us and we will forward it to you.
Prints are submitted to the Competition Secretary according to the schedule in the competition rules.
Points scored in monthly competitions count toward the annual aggregate, for which trophies are awarded at the annual Image of the Year night. Members may also enter up to four images in each section in the Image of the Year competition across four categories (Open Monochrome, Open Colour, People and Landscape).
Corio Bay Camera Club also participates in inter-club competitions each year against Geelong Camera Club, Ballarat YMCA Camera Group and Colac Camera Club and against all comers in the VAPS inter-club. We also compete in two triangular “International” Digital Images competitions; one against Kaiapoi Photographic Club (NZ) and Gem Camera Club (Perth WA) and the other against Kettering and District Photographic Society (UK) and Focus Photo Club (USA)
