Judging Courses

CAPA has trained judges since its inception to provide skilled competent judges and commentators at CAPA sponsored competitions, club events and international exhibitions. CAPA clubs particularly seek the help of CAPA judges for their own in-house competitions on a regular basis, and look to us to provide a consistent standard of judging across the country.

As a photographic society, one of CAPA’s most important roles is to nurture and encourage photographers at all levels to increase their knowledge and expertise in the art. Historically, one of the very significant ways we did this was to ensure that members received evaluation through judges with wide experience and knowledge of all aspects of photography. Originally created in Western Canada, instruction courses have evolved and grown to encompass new technology and techniques. CAPA provides nation-wide courses teaching the fundamentals of judging, so that those who enter our competitions, can be assured of consistent and well informed evaluation and commentary of their work. Significant time is spent on image analysis and an understanding of what an evaluator means when commenting on things that can improve an images’ impact and score.
