Fourth Annual Multi-Club Competition, May 11, 2023
On May 11, the Boston Camera Club participated in an annual Multi Club photography competition along with Gateway Camera Club, Newton Camera Club, and Stony Brook Camera Club. Each club submitted A-level and B-level images in each of eight categories.
The Boston Camera Club won the overall competition again in the 2023 contest. This is the fourth time we took home the top prize. In the A-level competition, all our images placed either first or second in the scoring. We placed third in the B-level competition.
Our judges, Polina Plotnikova (www.polinaplotnikova.com), Jeff Larason (www.jefflarason.com) and Lou Jones (www.fotojones.com) provided brief critiques of each of the 64 images and provided scores for the images in each category. At the end, each judge was invited to choose their favorite image for level A and level B. Congratulations to Philip Borden, Ed Esposito, Nadia Haq, Joan Kennedy and David Long for their first-place images. Also, images by Phil Nardozzi and Ed Espositio were chosen as judge favorites.
All the details, including links to the judges' web sites, a listing of the eight categories, the complete set of 64 images, how the images fared in the competition, and the judges' choice images can be seen in the presentation which is located here.
