North Shore Photographic Challenge 2023

Posted in: . | 0

Judging for the 39th Annual North Shore Photographic Challenge was presented on March 4th. We were one of 25 member clubs in the Canadian Association for Photographic Art’s (CAPA) Pacific Zone (BC and Yukon) that participated.

Each club submitted 6 images, all from different members, and each image was scored out of 10 by three CAPA certified judges. Those numbers were added up for a maximum possible score of 30 points for each image, 180 points for each club entry. Our little club earned 134.5 points, ranking us in a tie for 12th place.

Open the gallery below to view the images from our entry and their scores.

North Shore Photographic Challenge 2022

Posted in: . | 0

The North Shore Challenge is a long running annual CAPA (Canadian Association for Photographic Art) Pacific Zone competition, hosted by the North Shore Photographic Society. The Whitehorse Photography Club has participated in the Challenge almost every year since sometime in the 1980’s, back when we had to mail in members’ precious original slides for judging. Of course it is all digital now, and it has been opened up to individual photographers as well as clubs. Subject matter is completely open and image editing is unrestricted, so artists can let their imaginations run wild.

Three judges score each image up to a maximum of 10 points and those numbers are added together, so the individual scores shown in the gallery are out of 30. Club entries are comprised of 6 member images. Our club scored a total of 144.5 points, placing us in a tie for 12th place out of 29 clubs that participated.
