Club Entries

In 2016-17 the Victoria Camera Club participated in nine CAPA competitions. We won awards in five of them, including two second place Silver medals and three Honourable Mentions. In 2017-2018 we are currently scheduled to enter eight CAPA competitions and links to each of these are provided at left. CAPA is still looking for clubs to host the Wildlife, Theme and Portrait competitions, in which the VCC will participate if they are held. 

The file specifications for each competition are the same:

  • JPEG with a quality setting of 9 or equivalent
  •  max width of 1400 x 1050 max height pixels
  • Note: One of the dimensions must be exactly the maximum allowed size (either 1400 or 1050 pixels)
  • Colour space sRGB
  • Maximum file size 1.8MB
  • No watermarks or text are to be contained in the image

Members will submit their images using the Club's Website "Submit Images to a Competition".  The External Competition Committee will select the images that will represent the Club and forward them to CAPA.  Be sure to include the image title when uploading your images.

Go to CAPA's Competition Website

Individual Entries

Individuals who are CAPA members may also enter CAPA Individual competitions in addition to submitting images to the club. For instructions on this follow this link:

CAPA Competition Guides

We will endeavour to advise you if your submission to the VCC entry has been selected so you may avoid using it as one of your individual entries, as CAPA does not permit the same image to be entered in both Club and Individual competitions.
