*NOTE: No specific category is defined by technique. Subject matter must be the defining parameter. Care must be taken in the Documentary, Nature, Photojournalism, Travel, and Wildlife categories. Normal photographic processes may be used to enhance the image quality in these five reality based categories but must not be used to alter the truth of the photographic statement. This means not altering the factual representation.
Prints of the category winners and Best of Show images will be exhibited at the Whitney Library beginning September 17 through November 7, 2023. Makers of the winning images will have their images printed from the submitted file. Extra care must be taken to meet the file requirements. The print will be given to the entrant after the exhibit.
Nude and semi nude photographs and subject matter not acceptable to the Las Vegas Clark County Library District may not be exhibited. They may, however, be accepted for judging only.
A multimedia presentation of all competition entries will be shown at 6:00 PM on the opening day of the exhibit and awards will be presented. The exhibit and multimedia presentation are open to the public. The multimedia presentation of all competition entries may be shown during a regular meeting of Nevada Camera Club.
First place, second place, third place and honorable mention winners in each category will receive ribbons. A Best of Show ribbon and a $100.00 cash prize will be awarded in each division (Monochromatic and Color). A Best of Category ribbon will be awarded for each category. Best of Show and Best of Category winners will receive a matted print of the image. All prizes and ribbons will be presented following the multimedia presentation on June 3, 2014. Best of Show and other first place division winners may receive their prints as described in section 10.
Images will be judged by a panel of three photographic judges. Judges have the right to re-categorize entries. The decision of the judges is final.
Images that have won a first place ribbon in a previous Nevada Camera Club Annual Electronic Image or Annual Slide Competition are not eligible. Entries must have been photographed by the entrant. Images may be horizontal, vertical or square.
The entries need to comply with the above requirements to be projected, both for the judges and for the multimedia presentation. If an image is not in JPEG format, it will be disqualified. If an image exceeds 1920 pixels in width or 1200 pixels in height it will be disqualified and will not be judged. There will be no refund for disqualified images.
The entrant grants to the Nevada Camera Club the right to display submitted images during the reception multimedia presentation and at a regularly scheduled Nevada Camera Club meeting. The entrant also grants to the Nevada Camera Club the right to make one print of each category first place winning image and display said print during the gallery exhibition period. The print will be given to the entrant after the close of the exhibition. All other rights remain with the entrant.
Matted prints of the winning first place images will be available for pick up following the close of the exhibit. Photographers will be notified by email as to when and where to pick up the prints.
All possible care will be taken with prints. However, the Nevada Camera Club will not be responsible for lost or damaged items.
