Competition Entry Levels

In the 2011-12 club year, we introduced a new 3-level system for In-club competition.  The objective was to provide an opportunity for all Members to compete with confidence by entering at a level best suited to their experience.  All members who competed in 2011-12 were assigned to one of 3 levels for the year.  At the end of the year, the top 3 members in levels 1 and 2 (by accumulated score) will move up to the next level.

All levels are open to all members. However, once a member has competed in level 2 or 3, they may not later compete at a lower level.  NOTE: levels do not apply to inter-club competitions.

Level 1
Members who are beginners to photography and/or camera club competitions start at Level 1.

Level 2
Level 2 is an intermediate level for photographers who might have some experience with competitions but haven’t won year-end trophies or awards; who may have competed elsewhere and/or might sell or show their work

Level 3
Level 3 members have competed extensively in GRIPS or elsewhere, may have won prizes, ribbons or awards, may be considered professional or semi-professional; possibly sell or exhibit their work; or have had photos published.

A member may compete at a higher level than the point system determines, but not a lower level.
