October 2017 – Competition Updates

 

Welcome 

Each month, I will create a new Competitions Updates webpage and include new details which has been received since our last update.

 

The purpose of this Competitions Updates webpage is to:

1) encourage CAPA members and camera clubs to participate in one or more of our competitions
2) notify everyone when the details of a competition have been changed and outline the rationale for doing so
3) advise that competition results have been received and have been posted on our CAPA website
4) provide clarification and updates on the competition processes
5) advise of a new sponsor for one of our competitions

 

You are encouraged to send me your questions about any aspect of our CAPA competitions and I will send you back a timely response.  To ensure consistency and avoid misinterpretations, I will post the questions and my responses in a forthcoming Competitions Update.  

 

My aim is to make the competition process as transparent as possible and thereby increase your interest in submitting images to one of our competitions.

GUIDELINE FOR JUDGING A CAPA COMPETITION 

Our Guideline For Judging A CAPA Competition document has been updated to include CAPA’s new Competition Standards.   This document is provided to all camera clubs hosting a CAPA competition and to all individuals who will be judging a CAPA competition.  As required the document will be updated.

I encourage you to review out current Guideline For Judging A CAPA Competition document to obtain a better understanding of the competition process forward me any questions or suggestions to enhance the competition process. 

 

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

I have received the following questions and provided the corresponding responses.  CAPA Competition Standards will be changed if questions raised points to deficiencies in our processes.

Question: For a submission of an image for a CAPA competition, is there a time limit when the photograph has to be taken?  

Response: There is no time limit on when you took the photograph.  If issue becomes a concern then CAPA may review the necessity of re-introducing the time limitation.

Question: Am I correct in assuming that this year there will no longer be a Wildlife or Portrait Club competition? Or will these be held if a host club comes forth?

Response:  In March and April of this year, I put out request to all camera clubs seeking clubs to host one of the 2017 – 2018 competition.  Unfortunately, there were not club willing to host these two competitions.

If a host becomes available then these competitions will be re-introduced and everyone will be advised accordingly.

Question: Are Square crops allowed in the Closeup competition? The rules state that cropping is not allowed to simulate a macro/closeup image, but what if the individual composed the closeup image with the intention of cropping it to the square format?

Response: Yes, the image can be cropped to a square provided that the cropping is not used to simulate a macro/closeup image.  The potential winning images of this competition will be closely examined to ensure cropping simulate has not been used.

Question: With remote judging, are the judges going to declare their club affiliation to eliminate any appearance (real or imagined) of bias? 

In the past, host clubs were allowed to compete as long as judges external to the club were used. Ie. Presumably if the Foothills club hosted a Nature competition, they could not use judges from Etobicoke, Victoria CC, or London CC if those clubs had entries.

Response: You raised a valid point.  Our updated Guideline In Hosting A CAPA Competition documentation to include a requirement for the Competition Host to advise me of the names of three judges well in advance of the ‘day-of-juding’ and to include the names of camera clubs associated to each judge.  In addition, all the Final CAPA Competition Reports will list the judges with their associated camera clubs.

While at the same time, some Competitions Hosts are unable to secure appropriate judges and have asked to use some of their local judges.  To ensure transparency and integrity of the judging process, the following conditions have been added to the CAPA Competition Standards:

Three Certified/Trained CAPA judges will be used to judge the competition and they each must declare what camera club they are affiliated with. Exception – one judge can be a non-Certified/Trained CAPA judge provided they are well experienced in the Scope of Competition

permit Competition Host (camera clubs) to use their own Certified/Trained CAPA Judges provided that the judges have not been in attendance or involved in any way with the club’s viewing and selection of club images for the CAPA competition for which the club is hosting
judge can enter their own images into a competition they are judging provided that they advise the Competition Host well in advance of the “day-of-judging” and the judging system will accommodate the judge scoring zero (0) for their image and the scores from the other two judges are averaged and extrapolated to produce a final score. If this feature is NOT available in the judging system then the judge cannot enter their own images in this competition

The new ‘remote-judging‘ feature in our new on-line competition system being tested in the 2017 – 2018 will be a means of providing appropriately skilled and independence for our CAPA competitions.  The ‘remote-judging’ may be expanded next year to permit camera clubs to use for their local judging competitions and for regional CAPA competitions.

Competition Update – Fall 2017

New Online Uploading System

Starting this fall, CAPA has a new online competition system. The new system is similar to the one being used by many Ontario camera clubs.  A huge thanks goes out to CAPA member Lance Gitter of the Richmond Hill Camera Club who dedicated countless volunteer hours to implement and configure CAPA’s new online competition system.

Also new for the 2017-18 competition cycle, we are implementing ‘remote-judging’ for three competitions – Nature, Photo Journalism and Spring Open.  With ‘remote-judging’, competitions will be judged by individuals in different parts of the country without the need to travel to a particular club’s location.  This feature may be of interest to camera clubs and we hope that more clubs will become Competition Hosts by using ‘remote judging’.

The new online system provides for a more streamlined uploading. As with all new systems, there are a few requirements in order to have consistency when you upload images:

1. File naming Convention:

– Filenames of photographs to be uploaded may ONLY contain letters, numbers, spaces, periods(.), underscores(_) or dashes (-)

– No other punctuation is allowed in this filename or the name of its folder

2. Image Title:

– May NOT contain the club name or the photographer’s name

 Unrestricted except refrain from using the following characters:  ” ‘ 

When you upload your images, these notes will be on the screen as a reminder.

 

Competition Eligibility Criteria

There are two new items added to the eligibility criteria:

6. the submitted image must not have previously received a CAPA award such as: a CAPA medal, Certificate of Merit, Merit Award Ribbon, Honourable Award Certificate or Honour Award Ribbon

7. Do NOT enter an image simultaneously in both the ‘individual’ and ‘club’ components of a CAPA competition

A link to the eligibility criteria is in each competition description.  Please read these carefully before submitting an image for a competition.

 

Competition Standardization

It is important that entrants read and comply with all the conditions of each CAPA competition prior to submitting an image.  Competition Hosts will no longer request a re-submit for an image that does not meet the scope of a competition and the non-qualifying image will not be presented on the ‘day-of-judging.’

For clarity, there is a separate webpage for each competition.  The traditional CAPA Competition Guide has been eliminated.

For the majority of competitions, the judging criteria have been standardized:

Judges will award their scoring based on key elements such as composition, technique and subject matter.  However, the judges will have a strong emphasis on the creative message, quality of execution, innovation, and ‘wow’ factor.”

All judges will be asked to comply with these criteria when assigning their score to images.

In early May 2017, a message was sent to all CAPA members and camera clubs advising them of the new 2017-18 competitions.  Please explore all the competitions when considering submission of your images.

 

Fall Competitions

This fall there are four photo competitions:

  • Nature (Closes October 30, 2017) – has been expanded to include the promotion of responsible photographing species.
  • Fine Art (Closes October 30, 2017) – definition has been expanded and clarified.
  • Open Print (Closes October 30, 2017) – it is important to read the Competition Process for this competition to ensure you also upload a copy of your print image to the new online competition system.
  • Photo Journalism (Closes November 30, 2017) – this new competition provides an opportunity to expand your photographic abilities and to comply with photo journalism standards.

Volunteers needed for new Photo Critique Forums

We are looking for three CAPA members to volunteer for the new Photo Critique Forums on the CAPA Website. We already have two volunteers but we need three more. This is not an onerous time commitment, the initial planning phase may take a bit more but the volunteers would be looking at an hour or two each week or more if the volunteer wants. Volunteers don’t need any special website experience beyond basic computer and Internet skills. Their role will be to answer questions, facilitate discussion, keep topics on track, and generally be helpful to people using the Photo Critique Forums. This may be of particular interest to people who are interested in online judging as there are some similar components.

The Photo Critique Forums will allow CAPA members to submit photos and give photo critiques. Members can discuss a photo or compare photos, in a message string below each photo. Members can upload their own photos when ever they want, and comment on other’s work whenever they want. There could be assignments. All the details are not worked out yet as we would like to have the full complement of volunteers before decisions on how it will work are made.

If you would like to volunteer in the Photo Critique Forums please contact Sheena Wilkie directly at  webmanager@capacanada.ca. If you know of someone you think would be interested please put them in touch with Sheena.
