Here are the latest information updates and news about CAPA competitions.

CAPA Medal Presentations

This year we will be encouraging local competition host clubs to take photos of winners receiving their CAPA medals. We will post the presentation photos on the Winners Page for that competition along with all the winning images. If you haven’t had a chance to see the winners pages from the 2016-17 competitions, we invite you to have a look. For example, here is the winner’s page for the Fall 2016 Print – Club competition.

The Eligibility Criteria has been updated to include:

  • requirement for all competitions that the image colour space should be sRGB
  • CAPA and corporations providing prizes are not in any way responsible for any claims or liabilities related to the outcome of a competition or the violation or infringement of any Canadian law or regulation

Open Print Competition – Deadline October 30

This year, the Red River Exhibition Association is hosting the Print Competition. They are extending a special invitation to CAPA Clubs and Individual members to consider submitting and supporting this competition. There’s something special about printing your photo.
