The assigned topics for the five digital competitions for the 2017-2018 club season are:
“Creative” – Images should interpret the real world in a new, experimental and imaginative manner resulting in an abstract, unique, imaginative or unconventional display of the subject.
Images that appear to look like they are straight out of camera realistic shots will be considered weak or not in category. Click here for a more detailed description of “Creative”
“Action” – Can be sports or movement representing action
“A Splash of Colour” – images containing at least some splash of colour; could be a heavily saturated colourful photo or an image with strong dominant colours
“Scapes” – Landscapes, seascapes, skyscapes or cityscapes; an expanse of land, sea, sky or city that can be seen in a single view; may contain any subject as long as the primary aspect of the image is the expansive view and not the secondary subject matter
“Geometrics or Patterns” – straight lines and simple geometric shapes, e.g., circles and squares, used together to form a design or pattern
Images must have been taken no earlier than September 1, 2016 to be eligible for submission to the assigned categories. This is to encourage members to shoot for the topics and not simply to scour through their archives of old images for submissions.
