Judging

Photos will be graded by Digital Blueprint's owners, employees & a panel

of guest judges made up of local artists and photographers. 

 

Judging criteria:

  • Impact

            The "wow" factor. The image is striking and stays with you.

 

  • Creativity/Originality

            The image expresses a clear thought and original idea. The subject matter is                presented in a unique way or from a non-traditional viewpoint.

 

  • Lighting

            Proper attention has been given to light the subject matter. Any extremes of                  darkness or brightness are done to accent the content.

 

  • Composition

            The subject of the photo is framed in a meaningful way. Angles and                              perspective are used properly to best capture the content.

 

  • Technical Quality

            The content is appropriately in focus (unless intentionally out of focus to                        enhance the subject matter). Exposure, white balance and color are used                    appropriately.
