Competition Guidelines

Toledo Camera Club holds four regular intra-club competitions per year (September - May) to which paid members may enter photographs. Friendly competitions are a great way to share your photos.  On presentation nights, receive constructive critiques and comments to improve your photographic skills.  Our competitions are open for submissions beginning one month before the turn-in date listed on our Assignments Schedule. Competitions close at 11:59 PM on the turn-in date. (Competitions > Assignments Schedule)

Photos are accepted into the following 4 Divisions:
Creative Color, General Color, Nature Color and Monochrome.  Definitions of each Division can be found under Organization>Docs. & Files to Download>Club Informational Documents>Division Definitions.

Each Division accepts 2 Types of entries, Assignment and Non Assignment.
A list of Competition Types may be found under the Competition tab > Competition Type.

Each member is limited to 3 entries per Division and the entries may be split any way between the 2 Types, Assignment and Non-Assignment.  For example, a member may enter 2 photographs in Nature Non-Assignment and 1 photograph in Nature Assignment, or enter all 3 photographs in either Assignment or non-Assignment.   A member may enter as many Competition Types as they have photos that fit, but are limited to 3 photos for each division.

Members can enter image(s) of his/her choosing in the non-assignment category. In the assignment categories, photographers enter image(s) that fit the category as listed in the Assignment Schedule which may be found under the Competitions tab > Assignments Schedule. In this way we challenge members to photograph different things as a means to get members to try something new.

Please note that the Toledo Camera Club has the right to disqualify any photos deemed to be offensive. We do not accept nude photographs in our competitions.
