CAPA 2013 Annual Digital Competition
Rules and Guidelines
The CAPA 2013 Annual Digital Competition is open to CAPA Individual and Family members in good standing ONLY, who are permanent Canadian residents, at the close of the competition! All submissions will be automatically validated against our Membership database.
All entries must be submitted electronically no later than Midnight (Pacific Standard Time – GMT-8:00) September 30th, 2013, using our online digital submission system, on the CAPA Website. The submission system makes it possible for participants to submit as often as they wish, replacing their previous entries until the final deadline of the competition.
This year’s topics are: Artistic Portrait
and Organic Architecture
. There is no general or open category. Each participant can submit a total of two (2) digital slide entries, both on the topic of their choice. A digital slide is a photograph produced using any of the following: a digital camera; a scanned film slide or negative; or a scanned print. Entries can be enhanced, edited and/or manipulated in Adobe Photoshop
or other similar software. Digital illustrations must have originated from a photograph, as proof may be requested.
Prize packages, as published on the CAPA Website, will be awarded to First, Second and Third place winners, and special CAPA Honour Award will be presented to the next ten (10) highest scoring entries.
With proper credits to the photographer and a reference to the CAPA 2013 Annual Digital Competition,
prize winners give CAPA, Sony of Canada Ltd. and Adobe Systems Canada Inc. the right to publish their
winning photograph in Canadian Camera
and on the CAPA Website, and use them at any CAPA, Sony
and Adobe exhibition, publication, promotional or educational event. Entry into this competition implies
acceptance of the above practice, unless refused in writing by notifying the Chair of this competition.
CAPA recommends that the photographer obtain a model release for presentation and publication purposes,
prior to submitting an entry, and have these available if requested. In case of legal challenge, the
photographer agrees to hold CAPA, Sony of Canada Ltd. and Adobe Systems Canada Inc. harmless, and
assumes all liability or injury that may arise from entry into this competition. Photographers retain all
creative rights to their art. How to Prepare and Submit your Entries
