The Villages Camera Club subscribes to the Ethics Statements of The Northern California Council of Camera Clubs and the Photographic Society of America. Consistent with those Statements, all images submitted for competition in both Print and Projected Image mediums, and in all Competition Divisions shall originate as photographs by the entrant on photographic emulsion or acquired digitally.
By virtue of submitting an entry, the photographer certifies the work as his/her own. No clip art, digital art or photographs other than those made by the entrant may be used in whole or in part in any portion of the image. Images may only be manipulated as noted in individual division definitions. When graphic elements other than photographs created by the entrant are used in an image, photographic content must still predominate.
Note: N4C judging on a monitor rather than a projector, it is more imperative that members use the N4C standard resolution, a maximum of 1600 pixels in width and 1200 pixels in height so that the judges can better determine whether the focus is sharp.
