Monthly Evaluation Image Submission Dates and Categories


From September to April, we dedicate one meeting per month to an Evaluation Night. Members are invited to submit digital images to be evaluated by a panel of judges. Scores and constructive comments are given on each image, to educate members, and to improve the overall level of members’ photography.

Monthly Limit: Each month members will be allowed to enter 2 images total.

Photographs entered in the Monthly theme must conform to that theme and must “scream the theme”.

The Monthly Challenges for the current year are listed below, along with the image submission deadlines for the monthly evaluations.

The photos should be thoughtful, and capture the viewers' attention to make them think, admire or wish to try their own hand at making a similar photo.  The submissions should be captured in an interesting way via lighting, situation or during editing. A pen on a table is just that, but a pen laying in a silver case, with highlights bouncing off it, makes you realize it is not merely a pen, but The Pen. If you are really stuck for inspiration, you can browse the Internet for that photo theme and perhaps come up with a novel idea of showcasing your choice.
