Bi-Monthly Competition Rules

Open to Club Members

CCOR features bi-monthly competitions open to club members. The photos must reflect or demonstrate the theme for that month. The themes are different for each comp. (Click the arrows)

Oct 9: Weather

Show the storm coming, a glorious rainbow, the hard rain, the transformation of snow, a perfect summer day. Make us see and feel it.

Dec 11: People of Interest

A single person as subject. Mysterious or sinister, intriguing; interesting shadows, unusual cropping or composition; a memorable look into someone's soul. Not your conventional portrait.

Feb 12: Things with Holes

Holes are everywhere - big ones and litle ones; in nature, in architecture, in clothing, in paper. Create an interesting image with holes as the prominent subject.

Apr 9: Creative Development

Both Before and After images!
Play with your image, alter it, edit it and create something new. Show us the original and the new image you created from it.

Jun 11: Black & White Images

Your subject can be anything, but search for lines, tones and forms that make a striking black and white image.

Aug 13: Meet-n-Greet

Submit 5 photos for display at this meeting.
1. Your portrait (selfie)
2. Photo of your photo interests, desires, expertise
3. 4. 5. Anything you want to display

Submission Deadline
Sunday Noon!

NOTE: Make sure you submit your photos no later than Noon on the Sunday before the Tuesday meeting. Photos submitted later than that may not be received in time to prepare the images for judging.

Photo Requirements

Enter only .jpg files

Save your photos as .jpg files. SmugMug might not be able to open files with other extensions.

Photo filenames

In each bi-monthly competition, Jane Doe can enter three photos named:

  • Jane_Doe_1.jpg
  • Jane_Doe_2.jpg
  • Jane_Doe_3.jpg

You can use underscores, dashes, or spaces in the filenames. At every bi-monthly competition you will start over with "Jane_Doe_1.jpg".

No Resizing!

By popular request, you no longer need to resize your photos!

Upload your Entries

For each bi-monthly competition we email you a unique SmugMug link that will be valid until Sunday Noon before the competition. Just click on the link or paste it into your favorite browser and Click and drag your photos into the SmugMug window.

You can view detailed info on our Upload examples file and our metadata file. Also, questions can be directed to our SmugMug Librarian Ann Barber.

Photo Suggestions

Keep them bigger than
1920x1080 pixels

Photos bigger than 1920x1080 will automatically be resized when displayed. Photos less than that size will be displayed as smaller images and may be at a disadvantage when judged.

Add an IPTC Metadata Title

SmugMug will display a Title if you enter it into the IPTC metadata field.

Description / Caption

Leave the metadata Description field, (also called Caption) blank to ensure that your filename will be displayed in SmugMug. Enter other metadata as desired.
