Learning Through Competition

Competitions encourage everyone to improve their skills and to learn new ways to look at things. Constructive comments from judges can be a very useful learning tool. However, judging art is very subjective. Judges can’t see inside your thought processes.

  • If you like what a judge says, whether it is your photo or not, that is great. Use that insight to improve your photos going forward.
  • If you disagree with what a judge says, that is ok too. If you like your art the way it is, that is more important than what anyone else says or how well it scores.
  • You choose whether to use or ignore the judging comments.

Commenting on each photo

We ask that a judge provide a positive comment on each photo. Then, suggest how the photo might be strengthened.

Help the photographer think about a different perspective, crop, lighting, background, etc. the next time a similar situation presents itself.

Focus on suggestions for before the shutter was clicked. Try to avoid complex post-processing suggestions.
