Information for Visiting Judges

Thank you for agreeing to evaluate images 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 Unitarian Church North Shore at 370 Mathers Avenue, West Vancouver, BC. Click for details...
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

Two judges will be scoring projected images 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 members (1 Star) 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.
