The One Shot Competition

The One Shot Competition is open to all members of the Portland Camera Club.

Rules

  • Submit one picture for each of the 16 categories (see below). Interpret each category however you wish. Nouns can be pluralized.  For example, you could interpret SHOE as either "shoe" or "shoes."
     
  • All images must have been taken after June 1, 2016. Older images are not allowed.
     
  • Images may be shot in RAW or JPG. If the image was shot in RAW, it must be converted to JPG. All entries must be JPGs.
     
  • Images can be modified in Photoshop or another image editor as follows:
    Okay Cropping, saturation, lightening or darkening, and sharpening.
    It's okay to use layers to do these changes if you want.
    Not Allowed Cloning, healing, multiple captures, or any form of copying and pasting. The content of the original images should not be changed. For example, moving a tree from the right side of the image to the left is not allowed. Nor is cloning out a branch or pasting in a new sky.

     
  • Image size: use the same rules as our digital competitions: 1400 px max width, 1050 px max height.
     
  • Name each image file with the category number, your name, and the image title. For example, category no. 3 is "CITY SCENE," so a member named Ansel Adams would name his file 03-ansel-adams-portland-in-snow.jpg.
     
  • Put your entries on a flash drive (thumb drive) or a CD, and give the images to George Sergeant or John Bald.
     
  • For the category TITLE SLIDE, the picture will be judged and must clearly identify you, the photographer. For example, you could shoot a self-portrait for TITLE SLIDE.
     
  • You do not need to have an image for every category (there are 16 total). If you've only got, say, 12 entries, go ahead and enter!

Unlike in previous years, you do not need to enter a sheet of categories. Your JPG file will indicate the category number, your name, and the image title.

The images will all be shown at a meeting in the spring (exact date TBD). The judges will pick a winner for each of the 16 categories. Each winner will have a chance to become a millionaire....

Any questions: please see George Sergeant at a PCC meeting, or email George at suegeosergeant@comcast.net.
