Label

When you submit your print for the conference competition you will be given a new NECCC print label to fill out for the back of the print. This is being done so all labels are uniform, easy to read and have all the information needed. Information to be filled in will be print title, your name, address, camera club affiliation should you have one, email address and most importantly, your cell phone number so we may reach you during the conference if we need to. Please allow yourselves enough time to fill out the label at the time of submission

Judging – Sat 1:00 pm

All prints will be judged in a regulation light box and will be scored by the judges on a 3 to 10 point basis per judge, using an electronic scoring device for a total of 9 to 30 points per print. All scores will be recorded on the back of each print on the official NECCC label. Three qualified judges will select the winning prints.

Limited seating in Old Chapel is available to watch the judging.
