II. Procedure and Important Dates

The deadline for submissions is March 10th, 2014 at 11:00 PM. There are two possible ways to submit your photographs:

  • Online submission: Digital submissions will only be accepted for divisions D - I. Your digital photographs must be in JPG or PNG format. The maximum file size is 10 MB. You can submit your photographs via the provided online submission form below.
  • Print submission: Print submissions will be accepted for all divisions. Entries must be mounted on a 16” x 20” mat board or photographic mounting board. Prints can be any size within this limitation. Only one print is allowed per mounting board (except in the photographic essay division). You can drop off your entries at the Hart House HUB. Each entry must have a completed entry form attached to the back of the mat board. The entry form is available at here.

After the deadline has past, a jury of professional photographers will judge all submissions. The entrants of the selected prints (winners, runner-ups and honorable mentions) will be notified by March 17. If the entrants submitted their photographs using the online submission form, they will be asked to print and mount their photographs and drop them off at the Hart House HUB by March 22, 2014.

The official opening reception will be on March 27th at 6pm in the Hart House East Common Room. The winners will be announced and refreshments will be served. All selected prints (winners, runner-ups and honorable mentions) will be displayed in Hart House from March 27th, 2014 – April 20th, 2014.

All winning prints become the property of the Hart House Camera Club. Entrants of non-selected submissions are expected to pick up their prints at the Hart House Hub by March 31, 2014. Failure to do so will result in loss of your prints, and the Hart House Camera Club will retain the rights to use the prints as it sees fit.
