Competition Rules and Guidelines (2018 Revision)

The Monticello Camera Club (MCC) follows the Electronic Image Division (EID) competition rules and guidelines as set by our parent Club, the Columbia Council of Camera Clubs (4C). Beginning with the 2018-2019 season, the Guidelines have been revised. Please be sure to review this article for all changes.

The Monticello Camera Club holds an EID contest monthly, on the third Tuesday.

All images will be displayed on the club website with recognition for advancing images.

The 4C's Board made an official vocab guideline change. The category of Creative has been changed to Altered Reality, which the 4C's has defined as

Depicts photographic subjects in a substantial departure from realism. This may be accomplished through control of content, the photographic process, or post-processing.

As such, file naming convention will change from C_Title_Artist to A_Title_Artist

Members may submit a total of 6 images in any class combination of the entrants choice

Please use the following file naming convention to identify your image(s)

(example: T_PrettyFlower_JohnDoe.jpg)

For CREATIVE CLASS entries (C)
(example: C_PrettyFlower_JohnDoe.jpg)

For CATEGORY CLASS entries (G)
