All participants must be OCPA members in good standing during the Tech Challenge "image submission/judging" time period.

Participation fee is $5.00 per member (this fee does not included film or processing).

All participants will be required to put name in hat to be chosen for Technical Judging (5 judges will be needed), date TBA.

Since this is a Tech Challenge, all participants must have (or access to) equipment capable of, but not limited to: multiple exposure, macro, zoom techniques, flash, long exposure, depth-of-field preview, polarizing and other possible filters. It is always possible to shoot the list without all the hardware capabilities if the participant is clever enough to shoot the subject/technique without the "normal" equipment to do so.

All eligible images must be shot on transparency (slide) film and in 2x2 inch slide mounts. The exact type of film is at the discretion of the participant. Any/all images shot after May 2000 are eligible for this competition. Participants may shoot as much film as deemed necessary to submit the best image(s) possible.

Subject list will consist of 10 items/techniques (any/all images shot after May 2000 are eligible for this competition).

Scoring:

Get The Shot: 3 points will be awarded for each item/technique turned in for judging (maximum 30 possible points).

Popular Vote (judged on screen by any/all members, friends or family except the participants themselves).

Scoring on a 1-9 scale (same as all OCPA contests), based on how good an images it is, does it meet the subject/technique, composition, etc. Totals are averaged and awarded. A perfect score for a single image would be 9 (maximum 90 possible points total).

Participants Vote (judged on screen simultaneously with Popular Vote by the Participants only).

Scoring on a 1-9 scale (same as all OCPA contests), stressing on how well it was done technically plus other criteria as with "Popular Vote". Totals are averaged and awarded. A perfect score for a single image would be 9 (maximum 90 possible points total).

Technical Score (judged on a light table at a later date by 5 participants chosen randomly).

Scoring on a 1-9 scale (same as all OCPA contests), judged solely on exposure, focus/sharpness and other technical aspects, that are not possible to judge accurately on the screen. Totals are averaged and awarded. Perfect score for a single image would be 9 (maximum 90 possible points total)

Total Possible Score: 300 points (10% Get The Shot, 30% Popular Vote, 30% Participants Vote, 30% Technical Score).

Winning images to be shown at later OCPA meeting (June) and scores published in the Proof Sheet.
