CAPA Digital Fall/Winter Competition

Definition

Fall or winter is very broad in scope, so once again CAPA has created specific themes. Artists must enter their photos into a specific theme as outlined below. Images may be staged or candid. Keep the “Fall/Winter” heading in mind when considering the five themes below.

Theme Definitions

The Cold: in this theme you may enter scenes from nature, winter sports, winter festivals, urban and rural landscapes, seascapes, astrophotography, macrophotography, weather and transportation. Just make sure whatever you choose shows the cold.

Man-made Structures or Objects: if humans made it, you can show it. (Remember the overall subject is fall or winter.)

Culinary: the preparation, cooking, presentation and consumption of food in any location including restaurants, markets, parks, kitchens, banquets, weddings, homes, including or not including (as you wish) the cooks, equipment and consumers of food. Again, remember, “fall/winter” means summer barbecues are out, but snow on the barbecue?

Active Seniors: CAPA is looking for images that express the “experience and benefits of an aging-friendly community.” This theme could include portraits, activities, celebrations, crafts and sports, so long as there are “active seniors” involved in fall or winter activities.

Nature/Wildlife: For this theme, in addition to the normal scope of the terms “nature” and “wildlife”, CAPA also includes domesticated animals and birds.

Editing

The usual CAPA eligibility rules apply: see the CAPA general page.

This contest allows all in-camera, on-camera and post-capture editing, so long as the image appears “natural”, and does not contain any digital frames, pin-lines, borders or mats.
