Information For Visiting Judges

>

Thank you for agreeing to evaluate for the North Shore Photographic Society. We’re looking forward to having you join us. You’ll find judging for us to be an interesting and rewarding experience.

We meet in the basement of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church at 2347 Inglewood in West Vancouver (see the map). Park on the west side of the church or across the street. Enter via the ground level entrance off the parking lot. The doors open shortly after 7:00 p.m., but if you arrive by 7:30 p.m. there will be adequate time for an orientation.

Projection Judges

Three judges will be scoring projections and giving comments on each image. We have no projection themes or categories. The projections will be presented with the newer members (1 Star) first, proceeding through all levels of experience to finish with the most experienced (5 Star) entries. It will be helpful if you familiarize yourself with our “Star” system of evaluation, (Image Evaluation System).

There will be a coffee break where you can mingle with the members. We end the meeting by 10:00 p.m.

Print Judges

You alone will be scoring prints and giving comments on each image. We have two print categories: (1) Monochrome and (2) Colour. Prints can be made by the photographer or they may be commercially printed, either digitally or by using traditional methods. For both categories, the prints will be arranged to start with newer (1 Star) members first, proceeding through all levels of experience to finish with the most experienced (5 Star) members’ entries. It will be helpful if you familiarize yourself with our “Star” system of evaluation, (Image Evaluation System).

There will be a coffee break where you can mingle with the members. The break is followed by an informal discussion of the evening’s entries and optionally, viewing a portfolio of your work. We end the meeting by 10:00 p.m.
