Definitions of competition topics:

If you are not sure whether the photo you wish to enter into any competition will meet the topic definition, feel free to ask the scorekeeper@easternmainecameraclub.org before submitting your entry.

Open:  Any subject matter in good taste is acceptable.  (Back to Top)

Nature: Images submitted in the nature category should not show any evidence of "the hand of man."  This includes, but is not limited to, such things as cut grass, cultivated flowers, bird feeders, roads, buildings, or jet contrails in the sky.  Exceptions are banded birds and animals whose natural habitat are man-made structures; e.g. barn swallows.  (Back to Top)

 Windows and Doors: Windows and/or doors as the subject elements of any architectural structure, or in any scene in which you can create a pleasing composition with their shapes.   (Back to Top)

 Humor: Photos of any subject that convey a sense of humor. Maybe self explanatory, but here is a post by Peter West Carey that may help in creating humorous images.

(Back to Top)

 Macro: Extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects and living organisms like insects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size. By the original definition, a macro photograph is one in which the size of the subject on the negative or image sensor is life size or greater.
