External Competition Information

2021 - 2022

Dates and information for CAPA and other external competitions that COPS enters as a club. Images are selected from those that received an Honourable mention in prior monthly evaluations and that meet the criteria for the competition. Often there is a limitation on the number of images that can be chosen from one individual. The Associations Coordinator takes great care in selecting images that meet the competition criteria and that best represent out club. 

Note for CAPA Competitions

  • The club may not enter an image that a club member entered in the same individual CAPA competition.
  • The club or an individual may not enter an image that won an award in a previous CAPA competition.
  • For competitions with editing restrictions, you may be asked to provide a raw, unedited image to ensure editing restrictions have been followed.

For further information, please see CAPA's Eligibility Criteria.
