GTCCC Judges’ Course, 23 Sep in Richmond Hill

Saturday, September 23rd with the Seminar held at the Bond Arena in Richmond Hill.

Who can attend:

New Judge Candidates from GTCCC member clubs, current experienced GTCCC judges who need to complete the mandatory refresh and interested GTCCC member club members who are curious about how images are judged, which can assist them in making better competition images.


Whether you want to be a Photo Judge or just want the insight in the judging process to improve your photography, this course is for you. This full day seminar will go through all the various genres and categories that are used in the GTCCC clubs, methods for evaluating images, use of scoring models, proper commenting skills and a hands on Judging demonstration. If you are a Judge in Training, this seminar is a requirement on your progress to accreditation. If you are a photographer who just wants to improve your skills and/or optimize your images for competition, this course will detail what the judges look for in scoring those winning images.
This Seminar is also for existing accredited GTCCC Judges who have not had a refresher within the past 5 years. As you know, the GTCCC requires judges to stay current and this seminar will address changes in technology, changes in photography trends, use of scoring models, assessing images, commenting skills and online judging. We will have hands on demonstrations as well a chance to discuss among your fellow peers.
As we've had 3 refresher courses already, this will be the last one until 2020. If you have judges within your club that need to be refreshed, it's imperative that they attend this one to stay on the list.
This is a full day course. Refreshment and snacks for breaks are supplied. Lunch is not included, but you are free to bring your own or visit any of the local eateries nearby. Course handbook and Certificate of Attendance will be supplied.
