Some notable changes in the CAPA competition standards and eligibility criteria are outlined below:

No longer will a Competition Hosts be requesting entrants to re-submit an image which does not meet the scope of a competition and noted image will not be presented on the ‘day-of-judging.’  It is the responsibility of each club to ensure all images submitted comply with the competition description.

Competition Eligibility Criteria has been expended to include:

the submitted image or substantially the same image has not previously been recognized as receiving a CAPA award such as: a CAPA medal, Certificate of Merit, Merit Award Ribbon, Honourable Award Certificate or Honour Award Ribbon;”

they will NOT enter an image simultaneously in both the ‘individual’ and ‘club/ components of a CAPA competition

Prior to uploading our club images for a competition, I will ensure the filename and image title complies with the noted requirements.

For our club image submissions for a CAPA competition, I will be the person that your images are to be submitted to.  Prior to the day-of-our-club judging, I will send out a reminder for club members to send me their images by a set date.

Each club members can submit to me 3 images for each CAPA competition.  Our club will select the six best images which I will upload into the CAPA online competition system.
