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 noon Sunday, two days 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

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


Of course, use your own name! You can use either 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

Before each competition, we will email you a SmugMug link that will be valid until noon Sunday before the Tuesday competition. Just click on the link or paste it into your favorite browser and "Click and drag your photos into the SmugMug window."

Remember to rename your files like
Jane-Doe-3.jpg etc.
Otherwise, we will not know who owns it, and it will not be judged.

Questions can be directed to our SmugMug Librarian Ann Barber.

Photo Suggestions

Keep Filesize 1920x1080 or larger.

Files larger than 1920x1080 pixels will automatically be resized to fit our display device. Smaller files are displayed proportionately smaller.

Metadata is recommended

Although not absolutely required, entering metadata will help prepare you for our yearly Salon which does require metadata. For instance, you might enter a Title in the IPTC metadata field.
