Categories: 1) Deer/Bucks, 2) Deer/Other, 3) Turkeys, 4) Predators, 5) Miscellaneous.
 
Prizes to be announced shortly.
 

Trail Camera Contest Photo Guidelines, & Photo Judging

Guidelines are difficult here, because the subjects take the photos of themselves.  However, good camera placement will help you get better images and better backgrounds.  Be careful of objects (branches, leaves, etc.) in the foreground; they can show as white spots on photos taken in low light.  Set the camera at a distance its flash or infrared system can deliver enough lighting.  For deer, set the camera high and angle it downward; any light created will be less likely to go into the animal’s eyes and thus be less alarming.  Not all deer have equal sensitivity to a trail camera’s actions.

Remember that the fewer steps you take, the less scent you lay down.  Some hunters never get off their ATV.  It’s best to wear latex gloves when handling the camera to minimize your scent presence.

Judging?  We look for photos that show the subject well in an interesting setting/background.  Photos taken in daylight rank high; this means they were taken during shooting hours.  Photos from the middle of the night show you what’s there, and that you next must find how to see them in a shooting hours setting.

 

2) OUTDOOR PHOTO CONTEST RULES:

Five categories-- 1) Wildlife; 2) Flora; 3) Scenic; 4) People in the Outdoors; 5) Miscellaneous/Novelty.

 

Outdoor Contest Photo Guidelines, & Photo Judging

Photos will be judges with the following approach:  Rule of Thirds: - 1) overall composition, 2) framing, lighting, creativity of the topic, and 3) the photographic unit as a whole. All factors are important.
