Competitions Within The Club
The Boise Camera Club holds monthly print and projected image "competitions". Members submitting images on print or projected night are not competing in the traditional sense. However the images submitted are judged by a three-member panel evaluating the photo on: Composition, impact, and technical aspects, followed by a critique and or comments. A benefit of submitting photos on Print Night and Projection Night is seeing your images and listening to critiques and comments help us photographers improve our photographic skills.
Competitions with other clubs and individuals.
The BCC belongs to two other camera clubs, the Columbia Council of Camera Clubs (4Cs) and the Photographic Society of America (PSA). BCC competes as a club in the 4Cs Electronic Image Division competition (EID), PSA's Projected Image Division (PID), and PSA's International Club Print Competition (ICPC). Only images submitted at print or projection night are eligible for these competitions. 4Cs Electronic Image Division competition (EID): Each month from November through May, top scoring member images shown on projection night are sent to the 4Cs EID competition. These images are judged by different clubs within the 4Cs each month. The results of images entered in the 4Cs competition help members judge how they compare to other clubs in the area. Winning images are returned and shown before the projected image meeting starts. http://www.columbiacameraclubs.org/content.aspx?page_id=187&club_id=772283
