The Selection Process

The identity of the photographers was removed from each photo submitted and replaced with an entry number.   The judges received the photo entries in an on-line folder that contained each photo, entry number, hike name & month.  Judges each created a short list, then met to compare, debate and finalize the selections.   The following criteria were used to select the winning photos for each month, and for the Calendar cover page.

Judging Criteria:

  1. Overall artistic impression
  2. Colour, clarity, composition
  3. Fits theme – club trip
    1. Hiking
    2. Snowshoeing

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Resolution inadequate to permit enlargement – blurred portions 
  2. Flora or Fauna – not on theme
  3. Portraits – too closeup
