DPC will be holding our first Digital Competition of the season on Wednesday November 30th, 2022

Themes
This year’s in-house competition will be opened to the following three themes: Landscape, Portrait (including Environmental Portrait), and Artistic. For the sake of clarity, we have adopted CAPA’s definition of each of the three categories:

  • Landscape – this can include weather phenomena, geological formations, landscapes, seascapes, cityscape, man-made structures, and natural phenomena, planets, stars and astronomical events.
  • Portrait – the objective is to display the likeness, personality and the mood of the person(s) or pet(s). For the purpose of this competition, environmental portrait can be included in this category. Environmental Portrait is an image where the primary focus will be of a human or pet in an environmental setting (e.g. sports activity, blacksmith, firemen at the station, street scene, chef in the kitchen, paramedic with ambulance, etc…). Portraits can be taken indoors or outdoors with or without artificial lighting. Images can be staged or candid, and should tell a story. The face(s) and/or expressions of the subjects must be predominant.
  • Artistic – image that is “produced with the intention to portray a creative vision based primarily on an aesthetic and emotional thrust.” The submitted image(s) may be an abstract, altered reality or creative image.
