Judging the Lower Mainland Challenge (7:00 PM PDT)
Tonight we will present, and judge, photos submitted for the...
Lower Mainland Challenge
Here is your opportunity to be an inquisitive explorer and intrepid photographer - with a creative streak.
Between now and the end of April, go and explore one location (or more) in the Lower Mainland and shoot the heck out of it, trying to show it in a new and different way while still capturing the essence and spirit of the place. Submit up to 4 images (if too many, the fourth image may be dropped) to Brian D (email@example.com) no later than Sunday 6th May (do not send images to RPC.Evaluations).
Format your images as if for evaluation (max 1600 pixels wide x 1200 high) and name each file with the location your name and a number from 1 to 4, separated by hyphens. Do not include your level, and restart numbering at ‘1’ for each different location.
e.g. Vancouver Heritage-Brian D Phillips-1
Vancouver Heritage-Brian D Phillips-2
UBC-Brian D Phillips-1
BC Ferries-Brian D Phillips-1
You may select from the following locations:
a) BC Ferries (e.g. take a walk-on day trip to Swartz Bay (or a Gulf Island) and back)
b) Squamish Railway Heritage park.
c) Dr. Sun Yat-sen garden (Vancouver)
d) Chinatown (Vancouver)
e) Nitobe Memorial Garden (UBC)
f) UBC campus
g) Heritage Vancouver (older ‘heritage’ architecture in the city)
h) Lighthouse Park (West Vancouver)
i) Farming in the Lower Mainland
j) Reifel bird sanctuary (Ladner)
k) Granville Island
l) Other – must be outside Richmond but within the Lower Mainland (be sure to name the location in your file name(s))
At our regular meeting on May 8th all the images submitted will be shown and judged on the basis of three equally-weighted criteria:
• Technical skill
• Creativity / Uniqueness
Following the Annual General Meeting on May 15th, winners will be announced and will have the opportunity to tell us how they made their successful images – both in taking the picture and in later processing.
