Competitions

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 Digital Projected Images. The set subject competition entries are submitted as Digital Projected Images.

How to Resize and Save Images for Digital Projected Image Competitions

Members can submit their digital projected images by email to the competition secretary. If you do not have the competition secretary’s email address, Contact Us and we will forward it to you. Images may also be delivered on CD/DVD or memory stick.

Prints are submitted to the Competition Secretary according to the schedule in the competition rules. A competition entry form must accompany your entries.

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.

The Annual Landscape competition is an integral part of our Annual General Meeting night, with the winner presented with a perpetual trophy donated by Allsports Trophies, one of our sponsors.

Corio Bay Camera Club also participates in inter-club competitions each year against Geelong Camera Club and Ballarat YMCA Camera Group, against Bellarine and Colac Camera Clubs in a triangular competition 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)
