For New Members: Creative Critique Category for Competitions
New Club members can opt to enter images into a Creative Critique Category for Competitions where the images will receive a critique, but not be judged. The Category will have the same print and digital division as the regular Club competition. New members will be eligible for the Creative Critique Category for one year after the date the member joins the Club. The Category will allow new members to become comfortable with submitting images into competition without the concern of being scored by a panel of judges.
For purposes of identifying the entries for the Creative Critique Category, members will clearly write "Creative Critique" on the back of prints that are submitted, and start the file name of digital submissions with "CC". The information for regular competition submissions will also be included.
