Camden County 4-H will be having a local photography contest. The contest will have two age groups, juniors (8-13) and seniors (14-18). Participants can enter one photo in each of the following categories. Participants do not have to be a 4-H member at this time to participate. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes will be awarded. Any youth that registers and is enrolled in 4HOnline will be entered into the State 4-H Photography Contest as well!
4-H in Action – We’re looking for pictures that show us what happens at 4-H events throughout the year. The key to winning this category is the action. We want to SEE what’s happening. If it’s a judging contest, we want to feel like we’re right in the middle of the action. In other words, we want the photographer to get in close and show us what really happens when 4-H’ers get together for an event or activity.
****This category is for those who are currently enrolled in 4-H****
Nature’s Beauty – Exhibit your superior technical skill, move in close to the subject, and capture something really different. Capture beautiful things such as sunsets and ﬂowers. Or create beauty from something unexpected (mushrooms, a turtle having a snack, a dragonﬂy with torn wings. Photos should have nice light and sharp focus on the subject.
Pets in Action – Pet photography is big business! Use your ace photography skills to capture your pet (or someone’s) in action! Whether it’s at home or elsewhere, we want to see those photographs. Be creative! We will be reasonably all-inclusive as to what can be considered a pet, but please, no pet rocks.
Relevancy to Category Topic – Is the photo an obvious illustration of the category in which it is entered? If the picture doesn’t tell us, does the information on the entry form make it clear how the subject fits the category?
Composition/Arrangement – Are the objects in the photo arranged in a meaningful, pleasing manner or are they haphazard? Did the photographer use the best angle or otherwise interesting perspective?
Focus / Sharpness – Is the object of the photo in focus? If not in sharp focus, does it appear to be an intentional effect to enhance the image in some artistic way?
Lighting – Did the photographer use proper lighting of the subject matter? Do any extremes of darkness or brightness lend to or detract from the image content?
Creativity – Does the photographer show some creative thought or original idea in the making of this image? Is the subject something unusual or is the content of the photo presented in a way we haven’t seen before?
