Bi-Monthly Competition Rules

For Members Only

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 competition.

Submission Deadline!

NOTE: Make sure you submit your photos no later than the Friday before the CCOR meeting on the second Tuesday of the month. 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. We might not be able to open files with other extensions.

Photo filenames

Name your files "First Last #.jpg". In each bi-monthly competition, Jane Doe can enter three photos named

  • "Jane Doe 1.jpg"
  • "Jane Doe 2.jpg"
  • "Jane Doe 3.jpg"

Note that we are using spaces in the filenames. At every bi-monthly competition you will start over with "Jane Doe 1.jpg".

No Resizing!

By popular request, we did away with the need to fit your photo into the 1920x1080 pixels used by our projector display!

Email your Entries

Email your photos to our Competition VP. When he receives your entries, he will send you a return receipt via email to let you know that he really has received your photos. If you do not receive a return receipt, contact him again!

Photo Suggestions

Keep Filesize around 7 MB

This 7 MB suggestion is just that - a suggestion. If your file is larger, we will still accept it. We may eventually alter the 7MB suggested limit.

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.
