The Merrimack Valley Camera Club of Massachusetts has held this international salon since 1981. This is a premier all-nature club only competition of digital images known for its diversity of subjects which range from animals to botany to landscapes. Each club submits ten images into as many as eight categories – birds, invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, marine & freshwater life, botany and landscapes. Two major awards are given – The Top Five Clubs Total Score and The Top Five Clubs Diversity. The Diversity Award considers the aggregate score of the top scoring images from all eight categories.
PSA and CAPA rules of nature apply.
Last year we made a major change in the way we are handling the Glennie competition. Because Glennie requires at least one image in each of 8 categories in order to qualify for the Diversity award, we have decided to run 4 separate comps which are:
George W. Glennie Memorial Nature Salon Reptiles/Amphibians
George W. Glennie Memorial Nature Salon Botanical/Invertebrates
George W. Glennie Memorial Nature Salon Birds/Mammals
George W. Glennie Memorial Nature Salon Marine/Landscapes
This will allow you to submit two images in each category for a total of eight images. By doing this we hope to have many more images from which to choose our ten entries. We have entered the last three Glennies, coming in third, first, and second in the Diversity Award category.
This is a prestigious competition and we would like to keep our great track record alive!
