Points and Awards

Monthly contest winners are awarded points for each place won. At the December meeting (Holiday / award dinner) the annual awards are given to the member with the most accumulated points.

  1. First, second, and third place entries are all considered winning entries.
  2. Points are awarded as follows: 1st = 3 points; 2nd = 2 points; 3rd = 1 point.
  3. All winning places shall receive corresponding points, irrespective of ties.
  4. Two entrants, minimum, are required to hold a contest in a particular category to award points.
  5. For monthly photo contests where there is only one entrant in a still category, the entrant is allowed to compete in another category, only for that month. And, if the entrant places in the other category, points for the placement will be awarded but be applied to their original category e.g., if a sole Master entrant participates in the Expert contest and wins 2nd place, the entrant would receive 2 points in their original Master category.
  6. For all contest categories, a minimum of six (6) competitions must be held during the year for annual trophies to be awarded.
