Numeric Scoring Guide:
Below is our updated scoring guide, which goes into effect with this week’s meeting. It has changed to provide greater clarity for both judges and our members.
An outstanding image that is technically flawless and makes an impact that captivates the viewer.
A superb image with a minor distraction that nearly meets the criteria for a “10”
An image exhibiting a very high skill level and impact that can be improved in one or more ways
A solid image that is technically sound and clearly makes an impact, but needs some improvement
An image that has several opportunities for improvement.
Disqualified means that the image does not meet the assignment. It cannot be considered for an award. The judge can still provide a critique for the image.
