Eastwood vs VCC

George W. Glennie

This friendly competition between the Eastwood Photographic Society of Glasgow, Scotland and the Victoria Camera Club celebrated its eleventh anniversary in 2017. It was initiated by VCC former member Douglas Bain, who moved from Glasgow to Victoria.  Each club submits thirty images, fifteen by novice members and fifteen by intermediate/advanced members to be evaluated by two judges, one from each club. The judges assign a mark out of 20 for each image and the fact that they both comment on all sixty images is an added bonus.

This has always been a very competitive competition. Over the last eleven years, Victoria has squeaked out victories five times, Eastwood five times with one year resulting in a tie. It's a no holds barred competition, which means that anything goes. Here's your opportunity to submit your best two images for one of our most important external competitions. 

 

Specifications

  1. Image size should be maximum 1400 pixels on the horizontal x maximum 1050 pixels on the vertical, in JPEG file format and sRGB colour space.
  2. There are no restrictions on file size nor resolution.
  3. Maximum number of submissions per member is two.

Timing

Eastwood is opened for submissions on July 31st 2017 and the deadline for VCC submissions is currently set at January 18th, 2018, but this is subject to change once the deadline has been announced.


  • 2016/17
    This year Eastwood got the better of us in both Novice and Intermediate/Advanced categories, and in doing so, we are all tied up as indicated above. We’ll need to pull out all the stops to grab the lead back next year! (gallery at right)

  • 2015/16
    The Novice members held up their end by edging out a win 459 points to 454. Peter Kolbleitner's "Coho's Nose" took first place, while Meherzad Romer's "Simplicity in Intricacy" and Bobbie Carey's "Under the Bridge" tied for second. The Intermediate/Advanced members, in spite of submitting some great images, fell a bit short, losing to some outstanding images from the Eastwood group by a score of 533 to 506. Barbara Burns had our top scoring image "Crimson Dance", which tied for second place. Lois Burton, Mike Wooding, Don Peterson, Gail Takahashi and Ove Christensen all tied for third place with three Eastwood members.
    Overall, Eastwood triumphed with a total score of 987 to 965. Obviously each year it's anybody's game! see the gallery
