Members submit images before a meeting to a salon competition.
Before submitting an image to a Competition, be sure to read the General Rules and Preparing an Image for the Digital or Print Salon.
General Rules for Salons:
Entrants must be Crosstown Camera Club members
in good standing, i.e. club dues paid by Dec 1.
Monthly salons will alternate between Prints and Digital.
There will be four print salons and four digital salons.
Each salon has a “Topic,” an “Open,” and a "Monochrome" category.
Topic is the subject designated by the salon committee.
Open is any subject matter not in the Topic category. Monochrome is any photo in black and white or in varying tones of one color.
Each member may submit up to three images per salon dividing them between the Open, Topic and Monochrome categories as they wish.
Members will also divide their print entries between color and monochrome.
All photographs entered will be judged according to three criteria:
TECHNIQUE, COMPOSITION and IMPACT.
In addition to the salon competition there is a Critique-only category.
The purpose of the Critique-Only is to have an image critiqued without entering into the competition.
Provide a descriptive, short title for the photograph.
- Titles are for identification - to avoid confusing one image with another.
Titles are for posting on the website and for those who keep club records.
Judges don’t pay much attention to them.

Calling a photograph “Untitled” risks confusion in club records and later in your own memory.
