Projected Salon

Digital Salons

Photographs must be the work of the maker and not the product of a workshop, class or set up, with or without an instructor’s assistance. Competitions are open to projected images that have been computer enhanced or computer manipulated (digital). Digital photos must be based on or composed from original optically or photographically generated images. Projected images or prints are not to be totally computer-generated. All components (photobased) must be created by the photographer – no clip art or purchased software images.

Attendees may enter the four divisions of Projected Images as follows:

  • Pictorial Division – 2 images Usually, but not limited to, images that do not fit into the Nature or Wildlife Divisions.
  • Nature Division – 2 images Must follow the basic rules of the NFRCC for Nature entries. (See below)
  • Wildlife Division – 1 image of pure wildlife. Wildlife Division is open only to NFRCC members. The first place winner will be awarded the Diane Peyton-Majumdar Trophy. Images of captive animals may not be submitted.
  • This division shall follow PSA Guidelines for Nature and Wildlife photography, and be limited to the following:
    1. Mammals
    2. Birds
    3. Fish

  • Monochrome Division – 2 Images A monochrome image is defined as having varying shades of no more than one colour (various shades of that colour from very light [white] to very dark [black]) but it may be any single colour. Multitoned images (various shades of two or more colours) and greyscale images with added an accent colour are not acceptable in Monochrome competitions and must be entered in one of the colour competitions. This is an open competition.

    Note: The jpg file extension may or may not show up on your finished image, but if you have saved it in that format, it is there.
