Traveling Print Salon (club competition)
A set of prints from each participating NWCCC member club travels from club to club (within their circuit) during the winter/spring months, where they are judged and sent on to the next club. The juried finalists are based on the total number of votes by that circuit’s participating clubs. After the juried circuit is completed, these images are judged an independent judge(s) for the final results. All prints accepted during the juried round are displayed and the awards are announced at the fall conference.
The NWCCC Traveling Print Salon is a club competition. Clubs must enter a minimum of ten (10) prints up to a maximum of twenty-five (25) prints. No club is allowed to enter more then one shipping case regardless of the number of submitted print entries. A minimum of 4 club print entries are required in each entered category (Color and Monochrome). Maximum print or mat size is 16”x20”. Minimum print and mat size is 8x10”. Photographers may enter no more then four-(4) prints, in any combination of monochrome or color. A four-(4) print per entrant limit may be waived only if there are insufficient club entries to make the ten-(10) prints minimum required. If there is a large number of participating clubs, the clubs may be designated to a geographical circuit. Each circuit club will view and judge the club entries in their own circuit and select a First, Second, and Third place in both color and monochrome, which will serve as the first round juried judging. It will be each clubs print director’s responsibility to coordinate the transfer of the prints after club judging to the next participating circuit club. See additional rules in the General Rules for All Print Competitions.
IMPORTANT! All print entries must be submitted in a standard commercial print shipping case for the initial judging, and again later with your juried finalist’s prints. Each club is to leave the registration form in the case. We request that you permanently mark your clubs case on the outside cover with a legible color of your clubs initials of the club.
