Consistent with that Ethics Statement of the Photographic Society of America,
LGSCC Photographic Ethics Statement
The Los Gatos-Saratoga Camera Club subscribes to the Ethics Statement of the Photographic Society of America which states: all images submitted for competition in both Print and Projected Image mediums, and in all Competition Divisions, shall originate as photographs by the entrant on photographic emulsion or acquired digitally.
By virtue of submitting an entry, the photographer certifies the work as his/her own. No clip art, digital art or photographs other than those made by the entrant may be used in whole or in part in any portion of the image. Images may only be manipulated as noted in individual division definitions. When graphic elements other than photographs created by the entrant are used in an image, photographic content must still predominate.
We have only one competition level for all Digital Projected images and Print Images: Advanced (A) .
Qualified persons are selected to judge our competitions. We value their opinion and appreciate their consideration in judging for us. There should be no talking or making comments during the competition unless specifically requested by the judge. Please refer to How to be a great audience member for further information.
During competition, all images will be shown with the title announced. Member's names are not announced until the final winners are shown.
