Entering Competitions

SMCCC Competitions are conducted strictly in accordance with a set of rules last modified in 2012. It behooves all members considering entering competitions to read the rules carefully. For instance, digital entries must be named properly and submitted early to be entered. At each competition, there is a general category for each skill level, plus a single themed category open to all skill levels. These and other important details can be found in the rules.

2019 Competition Themes

Below are descriptions for each of the themes for our monthly competitions in 2018.  These are just guidelines to get your creative juices flowing.  In general, the theme competition will be judged based on a combination of technical merit, composition, creativity, originality, and how well the image relates to the theme.  Keep in mind that each judge may have their own interpretation of the theme and how well an image portrays that theme.
