You Be The Judge, Monday, November 9, 2020

You Be The Judge

Have you ever thought, “I wouldn’t have given that image that score?”. On Monday, Nov. 9, you get the chance to be in the hot seat and be the judge.

We will be using the judging kits provided by CAPA, which contain high, medium and low scoring images from recent CAPA Fine Art and Creative competitions. You will get a chance to score the images and compare your scores with the scores of the CAPA trained judges. We will also hear the feedback that the judges provided on how the images could be improved.

Please remember to download the category scorecards and material before the meeting so that you can follow along.

Cheers,
Joyce Chew
CAPA Rep

Photo Guild news- Guild/PSA Competitions Last Season


The Photo Guild held 3 competitions, last season, that were called Guild / PSA. From these three competitions we sent 6 digital images and 4 Prints to the various categories. As a result of the three competitions I sent out news about our club standings a month or so ago. Now it is time to show you the individual awards received from those competitions.

For those of you who made it to the Webex meeting, this is ‘old news’, but for those of you who weren’t able to join us, I thought you would be glad to know how well our ‘CLUB ENTRIES’ do on the international scene. I want to ask you to join me in congratulating the CLUB first and the individual members second !

CONGRATULATIONS PGNS and CONGRATULATIONS to each and every participant, and of course to the recipients of these awards for 2019-20.
