Tring Interclub Intimate LandScapes Competition

 

Arrangements

Up to 14 clubs in the CACC region are invited to take part in this PDI Competition.

 

The first competition evening is set for Thursday 24th March 2022.  It will be held at The Baptist Hall in Tring (restrictions allowing). Up to 6 members of each participating club are welcome to attend.

 

Each club must enter 5 Intimate Scapes, each taken by a different photographer.  A sixth ‘tie breaker’ image must also be supplied and this can be taken by any member, including one of those photographers chosen for the main 5 images. 

There will be a prize for the best club and the author of the best image.

Entry Date & Requirements

Entries are required from each club by no later than 3rd March 2022.  

The format of the entered images is jpeg, sRGB - with the file name in the following format:

Image number (1 to 6 where 6 is the tie breaker), Club name, Image Title, Author

                           e.g.  3, Tring CC, Water Scene, Peter Cox

Image Size:

The judges will be reviewing and scoring the images on their own screens at home.  Thus our priority is to enable authors to provide an image that will deliver the best quality image on the judges screen.  So images do not need to be resized to any specific pixel dimensions.  The only requirement that we have, is that the images are less than 5MB and are of sufficient quality to be projected on a large screen.

On the night, we will display the images, using powerpoint and will use a 1920x1080 projector which is a 16:9 ratio. We appreciate that some photographers: 

  1. May want to ensure that the aspect ratio of their images is aligned with the projector aspect of 16:9.

  2. Might, where the images are not in this aspect, (e.g. square, portrait or letterbox) want to define the colour of the area outside of the image area, to thus fit the 16:9  aspect. (Note that the default surround without such fill, will be a mid grey)

  3. Both of the above are optional and not a requirement -  we simply want the best quality images that can be delivered in a 5MB max file size!

We understand that this is unusual, so if you want to know more, please click here for a full explanation.

Judges

We are fortunate to have two wonderful judges:

  • Naomi Saul ARPS DPAGB ASINWP EFIAP – Naomi is with the East Anglian Federation

  • Chris Palmer FRPS DPAGB APAGB EFIAP – Chris is from CACC – a member of Amersham Club

The judges will pre-judge the images and swap notes in coming to an agreement on the scores for each image, prior to the Competition night.  Both will attend on the night and rotate in giving feedback on the images and announcing their agreed score.

All entries and the results will be published on this website. Authors must therefore agree to their entries being published on this and www.tringcameraclub.co.uk and any other website that may be used for publicity related to the event.  The authors retain their personal copyright at all times.

The date of the Competition is deliberately set to be before entries are required for the Landscape Photographer of the Year (LPOTY) and the Close Up Photographer of the Year (CUPOTY) competition, thus acting as an opportunity to test potential entries for these National competitions.  The images could also be used as entries to the CACC Championship Day
